A Sick Day for Amos McGee

Everyone gets sick sometimes, even zookeepers. Amos McGee is special, though. He knows each of the animals at his zoo very well and has a knack for being a good friend. Although he has much work to do, he always finds time to spend with them according to each ones needs and personality. When he finds himself under the weather, the zoo animals do what any good friend would: they go to visit Amos at home and cheer him up.
Young children will love the kindly face of Amos McGee as well as the expressive looks of the animals in Erin Stead's illustrations. Her subtle colors complement Amos' gentle demeanor. This Caldecott winner is perfect for reading with sick children or at bedtime. Jennifer Minicus is a mother and teacher currently living in Ridgewood, NJ.
