    This is a precious story with equally wonderful illustrations about a man, the zoo keeper, and his good friends, the animals. The zookeeper takes such good care of the animals, when he is suddenly not at work because of a cold , the animals go to his home to take care for him.

    If I read Sick Day for Amos McGee as a child I do not remember it. And if feel left out. This was a truly wonderful story with great illustrations. It deserves every award it has ever won.

    The illustrations for this book are done in watercolor. This book is about a zookeeper named Amos McGee who wakes up bright and early, puts on his clothes and goes straight to the zoo to care for the animals. One day, he wakes up and feels very sick and decides not to go to work. The animals wonder where he is and miss him, so they all get on the bus and travel to his house to see him and take care of him. This book is fantasy because the animals would not be able to get out of the zoo and travel to Amos's house to take care of him. This book would be perfect to read to any elementary school kid.

    Friendship, animals, fun, and a little fantasy, what else do you need. Sweet, simple, and highly recommended.

    I feel in love with this picture book by the second page. The illustrations really make this a memorable story about Amos, an adorable old man who spends his days with animals. Penguins wearing socks and elephants playing chess, it just doesn't get better! I fell in love with the art and wanted the book to keep going. The details in the art really helped you understand certain parts of the story as well, such as; the mouse holding a tiny alarm clock which read 5am, confirming that Amo's day really was "AN EARLY RISER".

    This is such a sweet and gentle book about being there for those who support you. The illustrations are just as delicate. I want to be friends with every one of these characters.

    I loved this book! I can definitely see why this book won a caldecott medal. I loved how the author described each animal that Amos helped at the zoo. I especially enjoyed the irony that the author portrayed when she explains that Amos reads a book to the owl that is afraid of the dark! My favorite aspect of this book is the plot. Amos works at the zoo and goes above and beyond to make sure each animal feels special. Then, the plot twists when Amos gets sick. All of the animals escape the zoo and take care of the man who always takes care of them! The overall message of this story is that friendship is the best medicine! This teaches children that when people take time to care about them, it is nice to return the favor!

    I really like this book because of how great of friends the other animals were to Amos. Amos is an elephant that falls ill one day, and gets visits from all of his animal friends. The illustrations are sweet and colorful. The writing is clear, and the plot is paced really well. The overall message is one of friendship, and the book really gets readers thinking about what it means to be a true friend.

    A Sick Day for Amos McGee tells the story of man named Amos who spent his days in the zoo playing games with the animals. When Amos gets sick one day the animals miss Amos in his absence and show that Amos is very important to the animals day. The animals repay Amos for his friendship by showing up at his home and giving him company during his time of sickness. This story is great for lessons on friendship and what it is to be a friend to someone who treats you well.

    Amos McGee, an older man, works at the zoo (or at least visits there daily although he calls it work). He visits his friends the elephant, tortoise, penguin, rhinoceros, and owl each day. When he fails to show up one day when he is sick, the animals return the favor by visiting and taking care of him. It's a cute book for children. Although the illustrations are not as colorful as some, they are extremely well-done and deserved the Caldecott medal.

    I enjoyed reading this story about friendship and each friend taking turns caring for the other.

    As one person can bring joy to others throughout their day, so too can a group of friends unite to bring one special person comfort and pleasure. I think that's a very comforting storyline and I absolutely adore the award-winning illustrations.The book has a gentle humor, a sweetness and an inherent loveliness that makes it one of my all-time favorite books.

    I loved this story about someone who considers animals his friends. He involves them in his life. A Caldecott medal winner--well deserved.

    Summary: Amos McGee visits his animal friends at the zoo every day until he gets to sick to get out of bed one morning. His friends, the elephant, the tortoise, the penguin, the rhinoceros, and the owl miss him when he doesn't show up for their usual routine so they take a bus to Amos' house to visit and take care of him.Reaction: I like this book, it gives a good example of what friends do for each other and how much they will be missed if they were not around. This story also shows that no matter how different people are we can care about each other and help each other out. Extension: The illustrations are clean and nicely detailed, they tell the journey of the animals from the zoo and on the bus to Amos' house without using text.

    A Sick Day for Amos McGee is a story of a zookeeper who really loves his job and has become friends with the animals. He has certain things he does each day with each animal, like reading to the Owl. However, one morning, Amos wakes up feeling sick. So, he decides to stay home and rest. The animals wait and wait for Amos to come and play with him, but when they realize he isn't coming, they decide they are going to go visit their friend. The animals take a bus to Amos' house to take care of their sick friend. This is a great book displaying friendship and the little things you do for people you care about.

    A charming story that is basically two parts. First, we get a picture of Amos McGee's typical day told in straightforward text with pictures that are pencil drawings with color contrast on just a few images within the picture. Then, we see what happens when Amos gets sick, cannot go to work, and all his animal friends at the zoo wonder where he is. I guess there is a third part because they find him and then there is a repetition of the daily activities but in a different context. The animals caring for Amos.

    What a wonderful book about friendship. Amos is a good friend to all of his zoo friends and the day he is sick and does not make it to work all of his friends come and visit him. This story easily conveys the rewards of being a thoughtful and generous person in regards to kindness and time.

    A charming story of friendship! Everyday Amos spends times with each of his friends who happen to be different animals from the zoo. One day he gets sick and is afraid he won't be able to see them, until they make the journey to his bedroom! There they do all the things they usually do, just in a little different manor!

    A Sick Day for Amos McGee is a story about a zookeeper and his daily routines. Amos gets up early every morning, makes his oatmeal and takes the bus to work. He works at the zoo and has daily routines with all of his animal friends. He plays chess with the elephant, runs races with the tortoise, sits with the penguin, lends a handkerchief to the rhino, and reads to the owl. One day Amos gets sick, and can't go into work. All of his animal friends miss him so they decide to take the bus to his house. Amos is able to continue his daily routines with his friends at home and he is very thankful they came to see him. All of the animals sleep at his house and get ready to go back to the zoo the next morning. This story shows that no matter what, your friends are always there for you. Each student could write what friendship means to them and their favorite activities to do with their friends.

    This kind hearted, warming story captures the attention of readers because of the realistic depiction. This book entails the adventures of a handful of zoo animals, traveling to their zoo keepers house who is sick. They proceed to care for their friend until he is fully healed. This heart warming picture book is filled with excellent illustrations. I would read this book to a group of k-1st graders because I feel as though they will be able to relate to their mother or father taking care of them when they are sick.

    A Sick Day for Amos McGee is about a man who goes to the zoo to do different things with the animals and one day he gets sick and all the animals go to his house to help him! I thought this was a very cute story. This is a good book to teach kids about friendship and always being there for a friend.

    "A Sick Day for Amos McGee" was a cute book. What I liked most were the illustrations that did not have words of the animals waiting for the bus and getting on the bus. I also liked how the book repeated itself a lot but with a twist. For example, the first part of the book was told about everything Amos does with the animals and the second part of the book explains the animals almost taking his place throughout the day. I think the main idea of this book is that friendship is the best medicine. The second day, Amos wakes up not feeling well and it is not until his friends arrive that he begins to feel better.

    I really enjoyed this book. I really loved the characters in the story, specifically the animals and the ironic characteristics/ traits that you were able to infer from the description/ illustration. For example, many people assume that elephants are not that bright; but in this story, Amos McGee plays chess with the elephant, proving that elephants aren't dumb after all. Although the characteristics and actions that the animals show are not necessarily plausible, the creativity of the story and plot were very cute! My only criticism would be to have seen more vivid colored illustrations. The illustrations were all very detailed and imaginative but, for example, the only page that had color throughout the entire page was the final page. I feel to capture the voice of specific pages, more color could have been used to emphasize these emotions!The book definitely pushes readers to think about issues and broaden perspectives. To me, this book emphasized the importance of friendships and being there for your friends through the ups and downs. Through reading, you are able to see Amos helping his Zoo friends but also how Amos' Zoo friends helping him! There are other take-aways as well, but this is just one that I noticed!

    Honestly, I just couldn't appreciate this. Sweet, yes, and artistic, ok, but it just didn't have any impact on me; it didn't resonate or give me anything new. The cover illustration isn't part of the story, either, which I dissonance I abhor every time I see it.

    Amos gets sick and doesn't visit his animal friends at the zoo, so they go to his house and take care of him instead. It's nice change from what I feel like a usual zoo animal story would be. Not rambunctious but nice to see the animals take good care of the zoo keeper. Illustrations are simple and clean, they don't detract from the story.

    This story is about an adorable old man named Amos McGee, who is a zookeeper. He absolutely loves his animal friends. He spends time playing chess with the elephant, reading books to the owl, sitting with the penguin and wiping the rhinoceros' nose (who has an allergy problem). One day, Amos gets sick and can't make it to work. His friends wait around for him. When he never shows up, they hop on a bus to his house and give him the same companionship and comfort that he shows them at the zoo. I love the illustrations in this book. They help to tell the story, but also add more.

    I enjoyed reading this book to my daughter for her to understand what happens when momma get's sick. Mr. Amos McGee worked at the zoo and he was always up beat until the day he came down with the sniffles and sneezes. The animal were not used to the change so they took a bus to Amos and pretty much took care of him the way he did for them. This book would be a great way to talk with children ages 4 to 6 about being sick as well as caring for other people

    Amos McGee loved his job a t the zoo, and the animals there loved Amos. Needless to say when Amos doesn't show up for work one day, the animals are concerned. They travel to Amos's house and find him sick in bed. They take good care of Amos and He is feeling better in no time.
