A Sick Day for Amos McGee

A Sick Day for Amos McGee
Written by: Philip C. Stead
Illustrated by: Erin E. Stead

I loved everything about this book. This CALDECOTT winner has wonderful descriptive pictures to match the wonderful sweet characters. Zookeeper Amos faithfully spends time with his animal friends. The care that he gives him daily bonds them. When Amos stays home sick one day, the group decides they will visit him. The delight Amos feels as his friends take care of him exemplifies the friendship they share.

I give this book 5 stars.
