A Sick Day for Amos McGee | Philip C. Stead, Erin E. Stead
Pickpick

Review: A Sick Day for Amos McGee by Philip C. Stead, 2010, is a Caldecott Winner and is about a zookeeper who gets sick and can't visit his animal friends at the zoo. It has some great illustrations!
Blurb: I would use this book in my classroom as a read aloud, allowing the children to see the illustrations as well as ask questions about the animals and story.
Quote: “and at sunset, read stories to the owl.“

Amos had lots to do at the zoo, but he always made time to visit his good friends.

This Caldecott winner is one of a uniquie art style. The illistrator clevorly uses color to emphasize parts of he book. Much of the background has nice detail but is in black and white, what is important has color, and the colors each mean something.

A Bad Case of Stripes | David Shannon

“She tried her best to act normal, but when the class said the pledge of allegiance, her stripes turned red, white, and blue, and she broke out in stars!“ This quote is a great example as to how kids try and hide how they are feeling.

I think this book is perfect to read in a bullying lesson. The other kids make fun of Camillia for her skin. After reading the book you could talk about how hurt Camillia was from the teasing, and how teasing affects others.

“A Bad Case of Stripes“ by David Shannon, 2004. Picture book. I love this book! It's all about the pressures of fitting in, which is something very relevant to elementary age children, especially the older ones. The illustrations are a vital piece to the story. Camilla has a case of “stripes“ which makes her skin all different types of colors, like rainbow. In the illustrations she really stands out from all the other kids.

I would use this in my classroom because it shows the children that it doesn't matter what other people think about you and to be yourself.

This book does a great job of showing the development of the story through the pictures, the content is also age-appropriate. It shows the kids that it is okay to be different and that the most important thing is to be yourself.
