Written and illustrated by husband-and-wife pair Philip and Erin Stead, the 阿莫的生病日 (ā mò de shēng bìng rì) A Sick Day for Amos McGee book, a classic gentle story, is a celebration of friendship.

阿莫(ā mò; Amos)is an elderly zookeeper who enjoys his daily routine. Everyday, he makes time to  interact with each of the animals. One day, Amos catches a cold that forces him to stay in and miss his daily visits with his animal friends. The animals reciprocate Amos’ kindness by taking the bus to visit their caretaker. Amos, in striped pajamas with a red stuffy nose, looks very sick. The animals modify their own activities to adjust to his needs. In the end, the friends all fall asleep in a big warm huddle.

The mix of detailed pencil work and woodblock printing in this Caldecott-winning book convey a peaceful tone, yet surprisingly expressive characters. 

Is my child ready for this set?
"Read to me":
Ages 4+ will enjoy having these books read to them either by Luka® or a caregiver.

"Read by myself":
The limited text per page and the prevalence of common language make it a good "bridge book" for readers. The involved plot and detailed illustrations will capture the interest of experienced readers ages 5+. 

Option to pair with Luka®:
Consider adding Luka®, the reading robot, to your order. Luka® reads 70,000 books in Mandarin Chinese! 

Set Luka® in front of the book, and it will read aloud any page your child turns to-- creating a unique, independent physical book reading experience even if your child isn't ready to read by themselves. Click to read our founders' personal review of Luka here.


Happy learning!
