“A steadfast friend to the animals at the zoo, Amos McGee's careful routine ensures that he never misses a day to sit quietly with the penguin (who was very shy) and lend a handkerchief to the rhinoceros (who always had a runny nose). So when the day comes that Amos is sick in bed, his friends come to his house to visit him. Reminiscent of The Napping House, children will love this gentle story of friendship and quiet fun.”
