Back to school means new experiences and in It's Show and Tell, Dexter! That is just what we learn all about. T-Rex Dexter is nervous about going to Jack's first show and tell. He tries to come up with a bunch of ideas to make himself better but in the end realizes that just being himself is the best way he can be. This book was adorable - Dexter gets really excited as he tries to calm himself for the big day. I love the message of being yourself being the best at the end. This is a really cute book for back to school.

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
