Introducing A Tractor Named Wilbur

Illustration by Holly Humphrys-Bajaj
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

This is a wonderful story about a man and the tractor he loves with all his heart. They work together day in and day out, happy to be in each other’s company.

But then, the unimaginable happens: life changes. The man decides to buy more property. It’s more land than he can “work” with his little tractor, and so, the man is forced to find a new home for his friend.

Yes, in ways it’s sad. But it does teach us—and our children—that life brings many changes, and we must try to ensure that when these changes occur, everyone is taken care of.

I was given a free copy of the book by the author for a an honest review.

What a sweet story about a tractor names Wilbur. He loves to work for his owner Jim, and strives to do his best, was he does. Cutting grass in Jim's yard, pulling the trailer, ploughing snow.
But one day it all changes. Jim wants to buy another property and Wilbur would be too small for doing the task there, and he was getting old.
Wilbur is very sad and his tears run down. Jim tries to easy him and put a blanked on him.
The story shows, that changes can come any time and one has to be prepared for it.
A wonderful story for boys and girls. They would love the story and the wonderful drawings of Wilbur.

In the last two evenings I read with my 7 y.o. son the beautiful story about the red tractor Wilbur. My son liked the book and I think that the plot is suitable for every child.
In the end of the book you will also find questions from the author that the kids will love to answer together with their parents. Highly recommended.
