Summary from goodreads.com:
A new constructacular picture book from the New York Times bestselling creator of Pete the Cat, James Dean and bestselling author, Joan Holub.My Review:
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!
This children's picture book is just too adorable. What a fun and sweet story to share with the children in your life. The "I love my dad" quote on the cover instantly warmed my heart, it's just too adorable for words, and so is the rest of the book.
Joan Holub, co-author of the fantastic Goddess Girls series, weaves a story that children are going to love to listen to and read along with. The excellent rhyming with just enough repetitiveness is a match made in heaven for kiddos. I know the little girls in my family will want to be reading this one again and again. I can just hear them giggling at the sound effects.
James Dean, creator of "Pete the Cat", illustrates the story with bold, painterly styled art. I'm sure kids will love seeing what each unique vehicle does on each page, and the vivid colors are perfect.
Of course, the main point of the story is that fathers are always proud of their children, and that message outshines even all the fun rhymes and illustrations.
Bottom Line: I loved this warm-hearted picture book, and I know that children will want to hear this story again and again.
