   Beautiful Story Paired With Perfect Illustrations
This is a beautifully written story about zookeeper Amos who gets sick and is missed at the zoo by the animals. They leave the zoo and take the bus to his house to care for him. The illustrations are beautifully created, portraying the love between Amos and the animals.
   Amos McGee is lovable
I just adore this book, Raymond said. It's a book about friendship, thoughtfulness, and caring, Raymond said. In addition, Ms. McGee is the zookeeper who is very punctual and spends time with the animals. In "A Mighty Heart," Amos discovers that there are some things that make people feel good about themselves. One day, his animal friends come to his house to take him out of his misery. The women show him the same consideration and affection that he has shown to them.

It was recommended to us by a friend who saw a great review in the New York Times. It is a heart warming story of a boy and his quest to find his true love. It's one of my son's favorite bedtime stories. This book is recommended to anyone with a child who loves to read. No wonder this is a must have for your home library.

   A Sick Day for Amos McGee
My 4yr old son is obsessed with this book. It's such a sweet story and he loves to help read by narrating some of the pictures and doing a run-down of the animals, Mr. Booher told us. The book is very well written and I recommend it to anyone. It's wonderful to be back home, Mr. Rule told the judge.
   Wonderful book!
I got a copy of this for my niece and am buying another one for my daughter because it is such a sweet story with nice illustrations, Mary. That theme has stuck with me, ever since I was a kid: that Amos and his friends take care of each other.
   Sweet story of Amos' bond with the Zoo animals; beautiful illustrations.
I've had a passion for this book since I was a young librarian at a public library. He takes the bus to work each day, and he makes sure to visit with the animals. The doctor is ill and doesn't go to work. The zebras are worried about the wolves, Tunick said. Just about everything about the trip is a surprise, right down to the animals, said Ms. Malvo. It's such a sweet story of the bond and care between people and animals, Tunick said. Please bring a book to the baby shower. 0 3171616 This is a baby shower, we request each person bring a book. I immediately decided to buy the picture book of A Sick Day for Amos McGee and I also purchased the board book. The book board is perfect for babies when the book is still small and the picture book is later.
