A Sick Day for Amos McGee by Philip C. Stead and Erin E. Stead

Amos works at the zoo and carries out the same routine every day where he would hang out with the elephant, the penguin, the rhino, the turtle and the owl separately, doing a different, special activity with each of them.

But one day, Amos falls sick and couldn’t go to work. When he misses his regular activities at the zoo, his animal friends decide to pay him a special visit instead.

A Sick Day for Amos McGee is a quiet, sentimental story about unusual yet simple friendships and how, when you treat others with sincerity and kindness, more often than not, it will be reciprocated. This is the sort of sweet story that will be best appreciated by a more emotionally mature child β€” or a less jaded adult.
