#MMBBR #Review #Giveaway #ItsShowAndTellDexter by @lindsaymward via #partner #TwoLions who provided a #free #reviewcopy


Lindsay Ward is the author of the Dexter T. Rexter book Don’t Forget Dexter! Though she never got to bring an orange dinosaur to Show and Tell Day, she did once take all four albums of her sticker collection. She is also the author and illustrator of Brobarians, Henry Finds His Word, and When Blue Met Egg. Her book Please Bring Balloons was also made into a play.

It's Show and Tell, Dexter! by Lindsay Ward
It's Show and Tell, Dexter! (Dexter T. Rexter Series Book 2)
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
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. This type of book is perfect for budding readers and new and emergent readers. I loved it so much and I cannot wait to give this book to my schools kindergarten teacher. She will love it as will her students!

Praise for It’s Show and Tell, Dexter!
“Ward’s gentle art features cut-paper forms with residual pencil outlines, providing an ad hoc quality to the spreads. Readers prone to anxiety over big events should be tickled by the idea that a toy has concerns too.” —Publishers Weekly

“Ward's illustrations, made with printmaking ink, colored pencil, and cut paper, wonderfully capture Dexter's every emotion and over-the-top ideas.” —Kirkus Reviews
