WILBUR is a small, shy tractor. He loves cutting the grass for Jim. But what happens when he must find a new home? Will Jim still be his friend? Who will the new owner be? WILBUR would love for you to take him home and read about his adventure. A Tractor Named Wilbur is the first in a fun series coming your way!
This is a lovely story about a tractor called Wilbur, that should appeal to both young boys and girls with not only an adorable red tractor, but also Susie squirrel and Hattie the chicken.
What I liked most about this story, is it's an easy read, that brings the little tractor to life with adorable life-like traits, such as bouncing on his tires when he's excited, flashing his headlights and sadly, when tears trickled down his headlights.
This book teaches responsibility and appreciation of owning something like a tractor, with the owner Jim meticulously caring for the tractor each day. Also Wilbur's excellent attitude to trying new jobs; such as raking leaves and plowing snow. The book also teaches children to see the bright side and that changes in life are not always bad. A lovely tale, that will capture children's imagination and I am sure will become a night-time favourite. “ ~ Hollie Anne Marsh, children’s author
