A Sick Day for Amos McGee by Philip C. Stead
Illustrated by Erin E. Stead
Amos McGee works at the zoo where he always makes time for his friends. When he wakes up with a cold and stays home, his friends pay him a visit. A Sick Day for Amos McGee is a very tender story love, loyalty and friendship. The illustrations have a timeless, almost old-school feeling about them, which match perfectly the vibe of the story. Lovely!
