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.

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.

The kids and I are all fascinated and grateful for this heartwarming picture story about Amos, a zoo caregiver who has established his relationship with his animal friends so deep that when Amos was sick one day, it was their turn to return his favor and care. Readers will see the cutest animals with distinguished personalities, big and small, sweet and wise, array from elephant, penguin, turtle to owl.., all present to Amos in their own different way on this difficult day, the best healing medicine of all - friendship, Abundant details within pages to make your heart and soul smile and it is very easy to see why this book has won the prestigious Caldecott award (2011).
