Friendship can be the best medicine when you’re feeling blue. Friends come in all sorts of shapes and sizes.

In this heart-warming story about the joys of friendship, zookeeper Amos McGee knows friends can come in all sorts of species, too. Every day, Amos visits his animal friends at the zoo, running races with the tortoise, caring for a particularly shy penguin, and reading stories to an owl. One day, Amos is too sick to visit his zoo friends, but, fortunately, the animals know just what to do.
