A new construct-acular picture book from the New York Times bestselling creator of Pete the Cat and bestselling author Joan Holub.

Mighty daddies, strong and tall, help their children, young and small. They keep them safe and bolted tight and show them how to build things right at the construction site.

Inventively told through James Dean's colourful 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. The Crane keeps his little one safe from harm. The Cement Mixer lets his daughter try the job on her own. The Forklift cheers his littleone on.

A surprising and touching view of a father's love for his boys and girls, Mighty Dads is the perfect way to say: I'm so proud of you.
