This review is from: A Sick Day for Amos McGee (Hardcover)
The drawings in the book make this story believable. The illustrator and storyteller gently entice young readers (and old, if we're willing) into the magic and mystery of unassuming friendships with zoo animals. The dialogue is poised to kick-start the imagination of the reader, and the sketches - dabbed with just enough colour - encourage young minds toward creativity. With subtlety, this storytelling duo have launched a keeper for children's literature. I look forward to more masterpieces from Philip Stead and Erin Stead.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Daughter LOVES It, Jan. 11 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A Sick Day for Amos McGee (Hardcover)
My Daughter is 2 years old and has me read this book to her every day at breakfast. She has part of it memorized and "reads along" with me. It's a great way for kids to understand how when you are nice to people and have good friends they will be good friends to you too.
