A Sick Day for Amos McGee by Philip C. Stead
Amos McGee, a friendly zookeeper always found the time to visit his good friends in unique and compassionate ways. He would “run races with the tortoise (who never ever lost) … sit quietly with the penguin (who was very shy) … read stories to the owl (who was afraid of the dark).” One day, Amos wakes up with a cold and can’t make it into work. The animals return the favour by visiting him. Philip Stead and Erin E. Stead won the 2011 Caldecott Medal for this book.
