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

Every day Amos McGee follows the same routine, taking the 6 a.m. bus to his job at the zoo, playing chess with the elephant, racing the tortoise, and sitting quietly with the penguin. But an attack of sniffles causes him to take A SICK DAY FOR AMOS MCGEE (Roaring Brook, $16.99). In several beautiful, wordless pages of pencil and woodblock prints by illustrator Erin Stead, the animals visit their sick friend and the rich nature of their friendship is gently revealed. Just as owl reads Amos a story before turning out the light, so too will children want to hear Philip Stead’s lovely book again and again before they settle in for the night. Ages 3-6. DDL
