{Mighty Dads: Joan Holub}

{Synopsis} – A new constructacular picture book from the New York Times bestselling creator of Pete the Cat, James Dean and bestselling author, Joan Holub.

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 James Dean's colorful construction vehicle characters, MIGHTY DADS is an adoring dedication to hardworking fathers and the subtle ways they teach their boys and girls 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. The Forklift cheers his son on.

A surprising and touching view of a father's love for his children, MIGHTY DADS is the perfect way to say: I'm proud of you!

{My thoughts} – I always love exploring new children’s books. This one was no exception. It is nicely written in a poem form. The illustrations match the poem nicely. The title basically tells it all, it’s a book about fathers and children. The love a child has for their father and the love a father has for their child. The illustrations help to portray that love. The poem helps to show that the fathers love when their children help them create things. It also shows that the father is okay with his child being a child and has no problem praising them when they do something right. One day they make one project and then as they are picking up and leaving the father suggests they make something new together another day. It is what your would expect a father child relationship to be.

It always reminds me of a poem I’d written many years ago for a school project about a fathers love for his daughter. it’s very nice, very nice indeed. :}

All and all it is a wonderfully written book for younger children. I truly enjoyed having the opportunity to review it.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
