Amos McGee is a zoo keeper who makes sure to give his animal friends special attention each day. When Amos gets sick his friends, a chess playing elephant, a racing turtle, a shy penguin, a rhinoceros with allergies and an owl who is afraid of the dark all go to check in on him. Just as Amos takes care of his friends, they all take care of him when he is sick. Lil Bug loves to point out the different animals and watch as they catch the #5 bus to Amos’ house.
