Outstanding, Primary, Picture Book, Sick, Zoo
Every morning for Amos McGee is the same. He wakes up early to go work at the City Zoo. He always has a lot to do, but he makes sure to visit all his friends. As he visits a few animals in the zoo, he takes care of each of their specific needs. However, one day Amos McGee wakes up so sick that he stays in bed. When his friends realize he is not coming, they head to his home, where they take care of Amos in the same interesting ways that he takes care of them.
