A Sick Day for Amos McGee

illus. by Erin E. Stead. 34p. Roaring Brook. Jan. 2018. Board $7.99. ISBN 9781250171108.
PreS—The Caldecott Medal—winning tale about a gentle zookeeper, whose animal pals show him as much tender love and care during a sick day as he's always shown them, makes its board book debut in this unabridged edition. Just as endearing and heartfelt as the original, the sturdy new format will introduce Amos and his chess-playing, bus-riding buddies to the littlest of pre-readers.—Kiera Parrott, School Library Journal
