Mighty Dads - A Book Review

Just in time for Father's Day there is a new book to share with you all! 

Holub, Joan. 2014. Mighty Dads. Illus. by James Dean. NY: Scholastic Press. ISBN: 9780545609685.

Dads do many things. Even construction vehicle dads. Dump trucks, bulldozers, cranes, and the rest of the mighty dads dig, scoop, spin, and lift to teach and encourage their children. The story is in a welcoming and perfect rhyme, and the text is in a bold font that allows the children to see. James Dean's illustrations are absolutely wonderful! They are bight in color and, though simple in general, has plenty of details. The children will love seeing the little construction children next to their dad. There are not too many books about fathers, especially compared to mother books. This is a must read and own book for any family library, school library, public library, and any storytime celebrating everyone's mighty dads!


  • Have the children make Father Day's cards, especially with a construction theme!
