A Is for Amos (Deborah Chandra) - Clippety clap clippety clap. A is for Amos and I'm on his back. B for the bumpety bridge we cross. C for the clippety clop of his trot…So begins an infectious rhythmic chant that takes a girl on an imaginary adventure on a wonderful horse. The countryside, the animals they see along the way, and a dramatic storm all figure in a story that takes its lead from the progression of the alphabet. Energetic watercolor illustrations adroitly capture the excitement of the ride, one readers will want to take again and again. Recommended for ages 3-6.
A Sick Day for Amos McGee (Philip C. Stead) - The Best Sick Day Ever and the animals in the zoo feature in this striking picture book debut. Friends come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. In Amos McGee’s case, all sorts of species, too! Every day he spends a little bit of time with each of his friends at the zoo, running races with the tortoise, keeping the shy penguin company, and even reading bedtime stories to the owl. But when Amos is too sick to make it to the zoo, his animal friends decide it’s time they returned the favor. Recommended for ages 2-6.
Amos & Boris (William Steig) - Amos the mouse and Boris the whale: a devoted pair of friends with nothing at all in common, except good hearts and a willingness to help their fellow mammal. They meet after Amos sets out to sail the sea and finds himself in extreme need of rescue. And there will come a day, long after Boris has gone back to a life at sea and Amos has gone back to life on dry land, when the tiny mouse must find a way to rescue the great whale. Amos & Boris is a 1971 New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year, Notable Children's Book of the Year, and Outstanding Book of the Year. Recommended for ages 5-8.
