Vacation For Dexter (Dexter T. Rexter #3) Blog Tour (review & giveaway)

Vacation For Dexter 
(Dexter T. Rexter #3) 
By Lindsay Ward 
April 16, 2019 
Two Lions 

Dexter T. Rexter is on a plane—for the very first time. 

Dexter can’t wait to go on vacation with his best friend, Jack. Supercool orange sunglasses? Check. Nifty travel hat? Check. Plane tickets? Uh, what? Dexter may be the toughest, coolest dinosaur around, but everyone knows T. rexes don’t fly! If anyone could do it, he could. It’s just that he’s suddenly feeling a little hot. And maybe a little nervous. But just as he starts to melt down, he notices Jack looks upset. Dexter realizes he has to be brave enough for both of them. And maybe, just maybe, he’ll start to have a bit of fun in the air. 

Both nervous and funny, Dexter tells the readers what he’s feeling and even asks their advice as he comes to understand that being brave with a friend makes everything a little better. And hey, those cookies during the flight don’t hurt, either! 

Praise for Vacation for Dexter! 
“The illustrations are just as laugh-out-loud funny as ever, with the toy’s expressions stealing every scene…Jack and Dexter have become a beloved duo, and the dino’s behavior-modeling sure goes down easily.” —Kirkus Reviews 

Everyone’s favorite orange dino, Dexter T. Rexter is back and he and Jack are going on vacation to Florida! Dexter is so excited and all ready to go...until he realizes they’re flying on a plane. A noisy, way up high, barf bag filled plane! Scared Dexter starts to unravel until he sees that Jack is scared too. What’s the bravest dino to do when his bff is scared? Help him of course! 

Lindsay Ward continues the charming and funny Dexter T. Rexter picture book series with book three, Vacation For Dexter. Once again, Dexter’s laugh-out-loud point of view and relatable predicament will delight and amuse. Aesthetically pleasing, the pages of Vacation For Dexter are full of lively, brightly colored illustrations and text that is often emphasized with different sizes and colors, all of which will captivate and engage little readers. 

Perfect for read-aloud storytime,  with its irresistible dino star;  fun story; and wonderful illustrations, Vacation For Dexter is sure to be a storytime hit! 

Lindsay Ward is the creator of the Dexter T. Rexter series. Although she isn’t afraid of flying, she always looks forward to cookies during her flights. 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.
