Jo has a bit of fever, and would like both of her parents to stay home to care for her; sadly, her mom must go off to work. Jo spends a quiet day in the care of her stay-at-home father, waiting for Mom to return with a promised surprise. All day long Jo looks out the window waiting for Mom, and in the meantime she sees all her friends from the neighborhood there goes the mailman, and there's the window cleaner, and Mrs. Ali from next door. But when will Mom be back with her surprise? This classic children's story sensitively portrays an ethnically diverse family and community, while Eileen Browne’s softly shaded art brings the endearing characters to life.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2 Jo has a bit of fever, and would like both of her parents to stay home too; sadly, her mother must go off to work. Jo spends a quiet day in the care of her father, waiting for Mom to come back with a promised surprise, and at last she does (the surprise being a junior version of the medical kit she herself carriescomplete with pills, colored liquids, and what looks like a syringe). Illustrations are softly-colored, done mostly in yellows. Thin lines and minimal shading define figures; spaces are filled but seldom cluttered. MacLachlan's Sick Day (Pantheon, 1979; o.p.) is a similar story, developed with more imagination, but the pictures here are pleasantly free of sex-role stereotypes, and are likely to make a greater impression than the brief text will. Jo's window looks out on a diverse, multi-ethnic urban neighborhood, into which her own parents, an interracial couple, fit very well. Characters are evidently, but not obtrusively, British.
