    I don't remember show and tell day from when I was a kid, but I do remember it as a parent. It is a stressful day and night before. I remember our kids saying something like:What should I take?Will it be as cool as what Parker or Izzy brought?What is something that I can share and tell a story about?Well, this is exactly what Dexter is worried about. He can't wait to be the guest at Show and Tell Day. He knows he is Jack's favorite toy and he is ...

    An adorable story about anticipation, friendship, love and about nerves regarding school. The story was very cute and flowed in a way that makes it fun to read and fun to listen to it being read. I loved the illustrations, they were dynamic and vibrant. The pictures are a great way for kids to learn to read because they are quite detailed and animated. The child can first tell the story by looking at the pictures and then later add in the words. ...

    Calling all dino-loving kiddos! It's Show and Tell, Dexter! by Lindsay Ward is an amusing story with a creative two-way dialog between the narrator, Dexter T.

    Dexter is a toy dinosaur with issues. This time, it is the anxiety called "Show and Tell". He is excited, yet nervous. He details his anxieties with the reader, finally deciding that all is fine when his owner Jack takes him to school and he finds out Show and Tell is a breeze!Ward uses a combination of uppercase and bold font to help convey the strength of the anxiety. Dexter's one-sided conversation is a riot to read aloud. Her illustrations we...
  • Jayden
    I really love the illustrations, overall cute book. In the book Dexter is worried about if he is interesting enough for show and tell and unsure if others will like him. As Dexter experiences trying options to seem more interesting in the end it results in just choosing to be yourself. I do want to point out that this book would work better being read in partners or read out loud to others. As it is comes off to me, as an interactive book. Almost...
  • Jana
    This adorable picture book tells the story of Dexter who's nervous about the upcoming show and tell day at school, because he's a stuffed animal that's going to be taken to school by his owner to be shown. I love the point of view of this story, and it's fun to think of all the ways this stuffed dinosaur wants to spice up his appearance - costumes, tricks, etc. This might be a fun mentor text to share with young writers to help them create storie...

    Received this book today after winning it in a Goodreads contest. It is absolutely adorable and fits in well with other dinosaur/school stories that are new this year. My favorite part, I think, was when he was wearing the Elvis jumpsuit with the T-rex on the side in sequins. And the end, which is simply saying - just be yourself!
  • Thomas Sammons
    Dexter’s catchy little tune always puts a smile on my boys face - after we finish either of Wards Dexter T Rexter books my son does a little dance and hums the rhythm (I’ve sung it in) of the song. Great read for parents and their kiddos.
  • Brooke
    This is a funny book about a toy dinosaur who wants to go to show and tell day at school. He tries many costumes and talents but ends up deciding to be himself. It would be a great book to read to younger elementary school children.
    It looks totally hilarious and breaks the 4th wall
  • Miss Sarah
    A stuffed Dinosaur gets ready for show & tell by bragging then getting nervous. Will he be a hot or miss? Cute. Elementary for humor and length
  • Michelle Halber

    Great !My daughter really enjoyed this book, she hasn’t had show and tell yet at school yet and this gave her the toys perspective! LOL 🙀😸
  • Aeicha
    Dexter T. Rexter is excited because Jack is taking him to school for Show and Tell. Dexter is worried he isn’t special enough for Show and Tell, so he tries to come up with cool, exciting ways (costumes, dances, etc) to be more special...but maybe just being his Dexter T. Rexter self makes him the most special of all! Lindsay Ward’s It’s Show And Tell, Dexter is a sweetly amusing and fun picture book with a wonderful message about friendshi...

    Dexter is going to school, and he is feeling many things that so many kids feel about themselves when they are going to school, either for show and tell or on the first day of school. How is he going to make everyone at school like him? What he needs to realize is that he should be proud of who he is and not question himself.What I love about Dexter’s books is that he really does deal with some tough issues that many kids deal with throughout t...
