Don’t Forget DEXTER! by Lindsay Ward is so Cauuuuuute! and #GIVEAWAY

Don’t Forget DEXTER!

Dexter T Rexter might be the cauuuuuutest T-Rex I’ve ever met! And sadly, I would be devastated if he were mine and got separated from me. But you know what, that’s exactly what happens in this adorbs story. Poor Dexter gets left behind in the doctor’s office waiting room. He’s sure his best buddy would never leave him behind on purpose so he sets out to figure out what happened and then tries to help himself get rescued.

The illustrations are multidimensional and so clever. I love love love this story. No spoiling the ending either, so you’ll hafta find out for yourself what happens.

PS you’ll be singing the dinosaur song all day!

 

Lindsay Ward was inspired to write this book after her husband texted her a photo of a toy dinosaur abandoned at a doctor’s office. The caption read: “Well, they left me here.” Lindsay thought it was so funny that she sat down to write Dexter’s story immediately. 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.
Most days you can find Lindsay writing and sketching at her home in Peninsula, Ohio, where she lives with her family. Learn more about her online at www.LindsayMWard.com  or on Twitter: @lindsaymward.
 
Praise for  DON’T FORGET DEXTER!
★ “Ward’s ink, colored-pencil, and cut-paper illustrations give readers a toy’s view of the world and allow children to stomp in Dexter’s feet for a while, his facial expressions giving them lots of clues to his feelings. Lost and found was never so riotously funny or emotionally draining.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Ward (Brobarians) is as funny as ever as she chronicles her orange hero’s nervous, no-filter state of mind, and her cut-paper, pencil, and ink drawings—with their visual asides, annotations, and shifts in scale—are irrepressible. It’s high anxiety made highly adorable.” —Publishers Weekly

Books and Good Health, a Perfect Combination. Get Covered!

Good health has always been important to me.  I believe that if a person isn’t healthy, they can’t read, can’t learn, can’t do anything. I’m especially concerned about child health because the little ones mean so much to me.  Regardless of your age, socio economic status, religion, etc, we all want to make sure our loved ones stay healthy.  I’m promoting TAKE CARE PEOPLE on behalf of the Ad Council and Enroll America.

But seriously, Take Care People! If PammyPam hadn’t been a librarian I would have been a pediatrician; I love medicine and helping people so much.  Ride this train to healthyville, people! Remember, a child who is sick, can’t read and can’t learn.  I don’t like the idea of my littles being sick!

Do it for me?

Why do I care so much? Because there was a time  for about a year when I didn’t have health insurance and I was constantly worried about my little ones getting sick.

Go get some.
