Wilbur Wolf, written and illustrated by Sally Lee Baker, is an adorable tale full of words that begin with the letter W. Wyatt, the leader of the wolf pack, notices that Wilbur is constantly worrying about every little thing. The sound of a bee buzzing around or the wind whistling is enough to make Wilbur worry about what might be lurking nearby. Wyatt doesn’t want the entire pack to fall into Wilbur’s worrisome behavior, so he concocts a plan that he hopes will help Wilbur settle down. Why does Wilbur worry so much? Will he ever overcome his fears? Will Wyatt’s plan work or will Wilbur’s worrying become a pack problem?

Wilbur Wolf is a wonderfully inspiring tale written and illustrated by Sally Lee Baker. The story is woven throughout with lots of ‘W’ words that will help kids learn how the letter works in so many ways. I love how Baker uses the most basic aspects of the pack mentality to point out important behavioral issues that affect many people and how support and understanding can help someone overcome their fears. The illustrations are bold, colorful, and tell the story through pictures that kids could easily follow along with. I recommend this story to anyone with children who love a fascinating story that delivers an important life lesson while being fun and interesting. Wilbur Wolf would also be a wonderful addition to a teacher’s curriculum when teaching students the letter ‘W’ and all the ways it fits into everyday vocabulary.
