2011 Caldecott winner – A Sick Day for Amos McGee

A Sick Day for Amos McGee

Philip Christian Stead
Winner of the 2011 Randolph Caldecott Medal

THE BEST SICK DAY EVER and the animals in the zoo feature in this striking picture book debut. Friends come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. In Amos McGee’s case, all sorts of species, too! Every day he spends a little bit of time with each of his friends at the zoo, running races with the tortoise, keeping the shy penguin company, and even reading bedtime stories to the owl. But when Amos is too sick to make it to the zoo, his animal friends decide it’s time they returned the favor.

Read the review and watch as Illustrator Erin Stead talks about the process of creating the artwork for her Caldecott-winning picture book, A SICK DAY FOR AMOS MCGEE. => http://bit.ly/wFdS8B
