A Sick Day for Amos McGee written by Phillip Stead

Philip Stead takes us through the thoughtful routines of Amos McGee's usual workday at the zoo, where "he always made time to visit good friends" the elephant (who needs a chess partner), the owl (who is afraid of the dark), and the rhinoceros, the tortoise & penguin. One morning Amos wake sup with a bad head cold and calls in sick. After waiting and worrying and missing their friend, the animals hop on the busy and pay Amos a visit, giving him the care he has so kindly provided them every other day of the week. Erin Steady's lovely pencil-and-color illustrations hold the attentions of read and child alike, with new things to discover with every reading (look for the tiny mouse!). So cozy. — Michelle
