Zoo keeper, Amos McGee loved working at the zoo and visiting his friends the elephant, tortoise, penguin, rhinoceros, and owl. Until one day he woke up not feeling well and had to take the day off. Of course his friends wondered where he was and decided to take matters in their own hands to see about their friend. They make a surprise visit to see Amos and cheer him up on his sick day as he would do for them. In this wonderfully illustrated picture book children will learn the lessons of compassion and friendship.
