    2. What an adorable and sweet book. It's a story about a toy T-rex that has been left at the doctor's office by his best friend Jack. He's afraid he's been abandoned and he spends the whole book figuring out a plan to get back to him. It reminds me a bit of Toy Story and the illustrations are super cute. Every time the T-rex sells himself as this big, scary creature, you see the actual scale of him and can't help but smile.

    10. Don't Forget Dexter! ~ Dexter T. Rexter Series ~ Book 1 is an excellent children's book to use to talk about the importance of friend's feelings with young children. The illustrations are delightful The problem with the eBook version is that you have to have one of the latest Kindles to read it because it will not download into older Kindles or the Kindle reading application on the computer.

    11. Full review with teaching tools: unleashingreaders/?p=1I love the voice of Dexter in this book! And the breaking of the fourth wall really adds such humor to the story line. And although the story sounds a bit like Toy Story and other toy books, it is so different than what you’d expect because Dexter is all alone, doesn’t know why he’s still at the doctor’s office, and is having a bit of an identity crisis. However, the way that Dexter feels will be easily a feeling that readers will re [...]

    19. Fun but simple, December 2, 2017This review is from: Don't Forget Dexter! (Dexter T. Rexter Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)Our nine year old daughter and I read this book together using two Kindles. I read, she sang the songs and did all of the sound effects so we had fun even though the book is really too simple for a nine year old. Comments from her: I really liked the song and making the sounds. My favorite part was when he fell in the fish tank. I had a lot of fun reading it.We downloaded [...]

    20. Lindsay Ward is one of my family's favorite author/illustrators. So when I saw this option for First Reads, I grabbbed it. I am not disappointed. The interactive tone caught my dauhter immediately. Dexter said hi and she waved at the screen. There is adventure and a happy ending. The illustration is not the same as Ward's other books because each book has a unique look as well as a unique story. You can't predict exactly what you will get with a new Lindsay Ward book, but you know it will be fa [...]

    21. A cute picture book for the preschool crowd! With a stuffed dinosaur as the narrator, we experience the anguish of a favorite toy when he is left behind. I look forward to sharing this with my 4K classes - I think they will love the little song/chant and all of the different dramatic declarations Dexter makes as he worries about his boy never coming back. The illustrations are all in variations of blue and orange and there is great use of different fonts and word size/emphasis for a storytime se [...]

    23. I originally received this as an advance readers' copy but I wanted to wait until I got an actual copy to rate it. "Don't Forget Dexter!" is a children's book about a toy that gets left behind at a doctor's office. Dexter is frightened that he was left behind on purpose and plots a way to find his owner again. It has a nice little song in the book as well as nice action words that can play out well in a story time for children.

    24. My 5 year olds review. : I like this book because Dexter was nice and the little boy came back for him. My favorite part is when he tried to escape and landed in the fish tape, that was funny!!!. My review: Overall thus book is a wonderful book and the best part is that my son love it. Dexter is quite the character. I love that he interacts with you. (The person reading the book) I completely recommend this book for parents.

    25. When Dexter's boy Jack goes for his checkup, Dexter is left behind. He searches the whole waiting room but no one knows where he is. Just as he fears Jack has found a new toy and forgotten him there on purpose, Jack shows up and zooms Dexter around the room. This is a great read aloud as Dexter's voice fills each page.

    26. Cute!I thought this was q great story. Dexter thinks Jack has left him! But Jack could never leave without Dexter. I especially enjoyed singing along with Dexter. Dexter goes through a lot of emotions in this book. It would be good to discuss them with your child while reading it.

    27. Great for toddlers and early elementary A cute story for kids who love dinosaurs. Similar to "Don't Let the Pigeon" books. Lots to discuss with young kids too: what to do if you get lost, reading how someone is feeling, and perhaps most importantly, are dinosaurs or trucks cooler.

    28. I received this book for review and found it to be an enjoyable read. Perfect for young children with big imaginations who love their stuffed animals. The story takes place from the point of view of a toy dinosaur and it was a nice twist. I would recommend for anyone looking for a sweet bedtime story for a young child.
