New Review for Wilbur's New Home: "Friendship and Separation done the right way"

New review by award-winning children's author Yossi Lapid:

"Farmer Jim McNab and Wilbur (his beloved red tractor) have been through a lot together and care deeply about each other. However, the time has come to say goodbye because the little tractor can no longer keep up with all the hard work in Jim’s fields.
It will come as no surprise to those familiar with the lyrics of Neil Sedaka’s classic song that “breaking up is hard to do.” Fortunately, when it is time to separate, there is, in most cases, a way to do it right.
Such is the theme of this masterfully crafted and beautifully illustrated book about friendship and separation. This educational and entertaining children’s book will teach young kids that is possible to say goodbye in a sensitive and caring manner. Properly managed, separations can become another reassuring affirmation instead of an abrupt termination of a long-lasting friendship relationship.
This is an ever timely and relevant lesson in our ultra-mobile world. Readers of all ages will enjoy reading this story repeatedly and use it as a conversation starter about friendship and separation. Buy it for your picture books collection and recommend it to public and school libraries."
Yossi Lapid, Award-winning author of the Snowman Paul series.
