Awardwinning children's book author Deanie Humphrys-Dunne writes enchanting storiesthat not only entertain youngsters and share insights into developmental lifelessons, but by placing the stories with animal (and mechanical!) characters,the stories become more accessible for learning. This book A TRACTOR NAMED WILBURis enhanced by the superb illustrations of Holly Humphrys-Bajaj, Deanie'stalented sister....This is a fine story about friendship, about enjoyingchores, and about changes that can open doors for new possibilities. Children(and their reading parents!) will have fun while learning important lifelessons. And...there is a little quiz at book's end to underline new knowledge.Recommended. ~ 5-star review by Grady Harp
"An awesome book cover, great hand-drawn colored pictures & proper font & writing style. A very professionally written children's (elementary age) tractor storybook. It was quite easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters, settings, etc. to keep track of. This could also make another great children's tractor fun movie, an animated cartoon, or better yet a mini TV series. There is no doubt in my mind this is an extremely easy rating of 5 stars." ~Tony Parsons

Reviewed in the United States on January 12, 2021

"A Tractor Named Wilbur" is a heartwarming story about Wilbur the tractor and his owner, Jim. They speak to one another and Jim takes very good care of Wilbur. Wilbur loves helping and wants more jobs to do, so Jim gives him another job of pulling a cart. Then in the winter Wilbur plows the snow. The picture of Wilbur with the plow on the front is adorable. Wilbur has a cute smile.
As Wilbur ages, however, Jim is concerned. Wilbur will not be able to handle a larger job that he needs done, so he must take Wilbur to a new home where he will have less work to do and still be useful despite his age. At first Wilbur is very sad and does not want to go away from Jim and his nice, warm barn. The picture of Wilbur crying is so sad! Jim promises to give Wilbur to someone who will take very good care of him. Jim reassures Wilbur of a bright future. Wilbur will be able to make new friends and have a lot of fun in his new home. Jim promises to stay in touch and remain friends. That way Wilber will have a lot of new stories to tell Jim.
This is a very sweet story and would be perfect to tell to children who have to move or who have moved. It would also be a great story to read to kids if there is an older piece of equipment, car, truck, etc. that needs to be sold. This book would have helped me when I was little because when my parents sold our blue car, I cried my eyes out. If Wilbur was there to show me that the car was going onto new, fun adventures, I might not have been so sad.
This book would be a cute story for kids around ages 4-8. The story is a little on the long side, so younger children might not get as much out of the story as older children would.
