Little one really loves story time. Each night before bed we snuggle and read a book of her choice. With Fathers Day soon around the corner we were sent some fun books from Scholastic. 

Mighty Dads By Joan Holub 

A new construct-acular picture book from the New York Timesbestselling 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 little one 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.

This is a fun book if your child loves trucks! Big bold letters so little children can red easily. Bright drawn pictures that make it look like a child created the book. A fun one for Fathers day or any day. 

My Dinosaur Dad

By Ruth Paul   

There are all sorts of dads, but which one is best?Is your dad prickly?
Does he snore?
Is he tickly?
Does he roar?
Could he be a DINOSAUR?

Award-winning author and illustrator Ruth Paul celebrates every kind of dad in this sweet, funny picture book perfect for reading aloud. With simple rhyming text and colourful dinosaurs on every page, little ones will delight in sharing this story with their dinosaur dad.

This adorable book brings the big scary dinosaur to a softer level. We really enjoyed reading this book. I was surprised to learn how much our daughter knows about dinosaurs as well.

    This is a cute idea. Promoting fatherhood and quality time by reading. Anything to get away from the internet. I'm in!

    Adorable! The excerpt My Dinosour Dad brings me back to childhood, thinking how strange a dad is compared to a mom. I assumed all dad's snored and were like bears unless they were playing with you.
