    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 sure he will be chosen for Show and Tell Day. But, 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 sure he will be chosen for Show and Tell Day. But, then he starts to have second thoughts. Maybe he isn't a cool as some of Jack's other toys. Maybe the other kids at school won't think he is as fun as Jack thinks he is. Dexter tries to come up with ideas to make himself cooler like dressing in a costume (Elvis was my favorite) or trying a new dance routine. None of them seem to be the right thing and he starts to get worried. Eventually, Show and Tell Day arrives and all goes well. Dexter is a hit. But, the silliness and real nervous emotions from Dexter will make kids love this story. This book is perfect for kids that get nervous about anything, like the first day of school, a doctor appointment, a play date, or a field trip. Seeing how Dexter handles his worry and nervousness will put kids' minds at ease and show them that just being themselves will make whatever seems so scary a piece of cake. Dexter is hilarious and this book is the perfect read-aloud book for a library storytime, classroom circle time, or snuggle time on the couch. There are so many exclamations and voices that the reader can use to make the book even more exciting. It is one kids will want to read over and over again. I'll be sticking this one in my sub bag for my younger elementary classes. I know it will be a hit!

So he tries on different costumes, does silly dances, and even tries to act like other animals. At the end Dexter figures out that all he has to do is be himself and he's good enough. I think it's a great book that teaches you to just be yourself. The illustrations are cute and it was really fun to read.

    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.

However, This review was originally written for The Baby Bookworm. Visit us for new picture books reviews daily! Hello, friends! Our book today is It’s Show And Tell, Dexter! by Lindsay Ward, the adorable second installment of the Dexter T. Rexter series. Dexter T. Rexter, a dinosaur toy, is back with a new challenge to face. His owner, Jack, is having show-and-tell at school, and he’s going to bring his very favorite toy: Dexter, of course! Dexter is so excited, and he’s been preparing for weeks. However, he’s also pretty nervous: will the kids like him? What outfit should he wear? Should he try to wow everyone? Will he make Jack proud? Dexter works himself into a frenzy over his worries, but the reader offers a suggestion: instead of trying to impress Jack’s classmates with costumes or flashy tricks, what if Dexter just went as… himself? Wonderful! This was a story with a lot of comedy, yet had a very encouraging message for little ones who also may be feeling nervous about their first day of school. Dexter’s histrionics are presented in laughably dramatic text that is a blast to read aloud and act out – JJ was screeching with laughter by the time we got to “TOTAL FREAKOUT!”. But the message that being yourself is always the best way to face new experiences is the best part, and brought the plot full-circle beautifully. The art is bright, colorful, and full of energy, and JJ loved seeing Dexter’s antics. The length is great, and we both enjoyed this one a lot. A fantastic follow-up, yet stands on its own as a wonderful lesson in being oneself. Baby Bookworm approved!

    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 leaving space for a response.

    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 stories from another person's or thing's point of view.

    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!

    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.

    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

    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 their childhood, but it is done in a super hilarious 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.
