Children’s Book Review: Vacation for Dexter! By Lindsay Ward

VACATION FOR DEXTER!

A Dexter T. Rexter Book

Fiction


Dexter the Dinosaur is leaving with the family to go to Florida. He assumes it will be the road trip of a lifetime…until they arrive at the airport. Dexter has never flown before and is quite afraid. When Jack also gets a bit scared on the plane, Dexter comes to the rescue and the two of them comfort each other through the rest of the trip.

Dexter is quite silly as he points out his tiny arms or smelly armpits. Jack’s expressions show his anxiety and fears and relief when Dexter joins Jack on his lap. After comforting each other and a few cookies, they realize that flying can be fun and exciting.

Kids will relate to both Jack and Dexter’s fears about flying. If your family is taking a trip, reading this book can help a child feel more comfortable about the flight. Make sure you pack their own friend for the trip!

This is the third in the Dexter T. Rexter series and Ward’s writing and illustrations are just as delightful. To see all the books in the series click, HERE.
