A Sick Day For Amos McGee
by Philip Stead
illustrated by Erin Stead
Amos McGee is always very busy at work at the city zoo, but he always makes time for his animal friends. He plays chess the ponderous elephant. He races the enormous tortoise. He sits quietly with the shy penguin. He comforts the allergy-prone rhinoceros, and he reads to the owl who’s afraid of the dark. But when Amos feels a little under the weather and can’t come to work one day, his friends come to his home to make sure he receives the care he needs.
A New York Times bestselling children’s book and a very, very sweet story. Great for ages 3 and up.
