This board-book edition of the 2011 Caldecott Awardwinner is a sturdier alternative to the original picture book--even if it's not really a board-book story. Kindly zookeeper Amos McGee plays chess with the elephant, reads to the owl, etc. When Amos stays home one day, his friends have just the right medicine: they make time to visit their pal. The detailed pencil and woodblock illustrations enhance the gentle text's cozy mood. Copyright 2018 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

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
