"A Neal Porter book."
"Amos McGee, a friendly zookeeper, always made time to visit his good friends: the elephant, the tortoise, the penguin, the rhinoceros, and the owl. But one day--'Ah-choo!'--he woke with the sniffles and the sneezes. Though he didn't make it into the zoo that day, he did receive some unexpected guests."--Dust jacket.

nice submitted by Ele Z. on July 22, 2011, 3:07pm its worth reading it

Found It! Loved It. submitted by Sara W on July 22, 2011, 6:48pm Ok, I only looked this up on the catalog to find the game code for the summer game - BUT I have read this book and thought, hey, well I'm here, why not write a review!

Somehow the cover made me expect a sad story, but there's nothing sad about this book. It's about friendship and being adorable. It's also about routine, which I loved.

I loved the whimsy of Amos' relationships with each of the animals in his care at the zoo and when he's a little under the weather, his friends show that they love him, and their daily routine, as much as he does. It's heartwarming, sweet, charming and other adjectives. Oh, please read it!

Sweet Book submitted by Lea on July 24, 2011, 12:47pm Very sweet story. My daughter loved the animals. Wonderful illustrations.

Wonderful submitted by Morgsush on July 25, 2011, 9:02pm It's a wonderful story with beautifully illustrated pictures.

Favorite book submitted by Djbabyjd on July 2, 2017, 7:02pm This is one of our family's favorite books! And we were happy to find out the author lives in Michigan. What a lovely way to learn about compassion and kindness and taking care of your friends.

Sweet story submitted by KOH on August 27, 2017, 11:01pm Such a sweet story! I'm glad I found this!

Beautiful book submitted by kpkozloff on August 28, 2018, 8:50am I was drawn to this book for the illustrations by Erin Stead, but I read it over and over to my kids for the story of gentle compassion. I also love that Amos is an older person, but the story and images have a very whimsical/childlike tone.
