A Sick Day for Amos McGee, by Philip C. Stead

amosmcgeeA sweet story about friendship. Great for pre-school and kindergarten read alouds.

Synopsis: Amos McGee is a zookeeper who takes the bus each day to go to the zoo.  Although he has lots of work to do, he always finds time for his friends.  The elephant loves chess, the tortoise loves to race, the penguin loves to sit quietly, the rhinoceros always needs a handkerchief for his runny nose, and the owl likes to have stories read to him, because he is afraid of the dark.  When Amos is sick and can’t come to work, the animals get on the bus and go to see him.  One by one, they take care of Amos, just as he always takes care of them.
