A Sick Day for Amos McGee by Philip C. Stead

I LOVE this book! It is SO sweet! Amos McGee works at the zoo. He is never late and he has a routine with the animals that he never misses. He plays chess with the elephant, he runs races with the tortoise, he reads books with owl and so on. When, one day, he doesn’t show up, the animals aren’t quite sure what to do with themselves, so they hop on the city bus and go to visit Amos who is sick in bed. The animals take care of him and reciprocate all of the niceness that he shows to them each day. This book will leave you smiling, or at least it did me.
