Mighty Dads

Mighty Dads

by Joan Holub Illustrated by James Dean

Mighty dads, strong and tall,
help their children, young and small.

They keep them safe and bolted tight
and show them how to build things right.

Inventively told through colorful construction vehicle characters, Mighty Dads is an adoring tribute to hardworking fathers and the subtle ways they teach their kids to follow in their tracks. The Dump Trucks learn to get dirty. Crane keeps his little one safe from harm. The busy Cement Mixer gives his daughter a hug. This book wonderfully captures the devotion and pride dads feel toward their children.
