Sick Day for Amos McGee

by Philip C. Stead
2011 Caldecott Award
Kids Wings Award Book

Amos McGee is a kindly zookeeper who gives each animal the attention it needs.
He patiently plays chess with the elephant.
He sits quietly with the shy penguin.
He dabs the rhinoceros's drippy nose with his handkerchief.
He reads bedtime stories to the owl.
He runs races with the tortoise and always lets him win.
What do you think the animals will do when Amos gets sick and takes a sick day?
