A Sick Day for Amos McGee

This is an easy book to love. A Sick Day for Amos McGee is the newest Caldecott winner. It’s written and illustrated by Philip & Erin Stead and it’s sweet as can be!

It’s a story about zookeeper Amos, and what happens when he can’t make it to work one day. The story is compassionate, the illustrations are gorgeous and my kids adore it. Plus, I love that it was a husband-wife collaboration.

P.S. — I collect Caldecott books (and other great picture books too). Do you collect anything?
