A Sick Day for Amos McGee, by Philip C. Stead

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 return the favor. This is a wonderful story about friendship and helping others. Tell me about a time when you did something else for someone - a friend or a family member to cheer them up, bring them joy or take care of them. Share it with me on THIS FLIPGRID!

After many hilarious attempts, Turkey comes up with the perfect disguise to make this Thanksgiving the best ever!  Your challenge is to come up with a disguise for a turkey! Share it with me on this THIS FLIPGRID!
