The Good Egg
The Good Egg | Jory John
12 posts | 13 read | 6 to read
From the bestselling creators of The Bad Seed, a timely story about not having to be Grade A perfect! Meet the good egg. Hes a verrrrrry good egg indeed. But trying to be so good is hard when everyone else is plain ol rotten. As the other eggs in the dozen behave badly, the good egg starts to crack from all the pressure of feeling like he has to be perfect. So, he decides enough is enough! Its time for him to make a change Dynamic duo Jory John and Pete Oswald hatch a funny and charming story that reminds us of the importance of balance, self-care, and accepting those who we love (even if they are sometimes a bit rotten). Perfect for reading aloud and shared story time!

My last few #ImpulseRead picture books for now. I really liked The Good Egg, and the others were alright. #wintergames #merryreaders

Clwojick I really want to read The Good Egg, and The Bad Seed. They look adorable. I love the illustration style. ♥️ 2mo
monalyisha I was so disappointed by “A Tiger Like Me”! It was so wordy! I honestly gave up & didn‘t even read the entire thing. 🤷‍♀️ I did like “The Good Egg,” though Mac Barnett‘s “Just Because” was my favorite of the (Goodreads-nominated) bunch. 😊 2mo
Butterfinger My little girl loves the good egg. I think I have all the names memorized in order. 2mo

Hummmmm. I see why this book shows up on so many best of lists. It uses an egg and cracking as a way to illustrate feeling under pressure because you are trying to be good in a world of people not trying as hard. How do you deal. You take time for yourself and learn what you need to do to keep your shell intact in a crazy world.

This book is about me! It‘s so cute and with a great message for those of us who are perfectionists and get stressed out by trying to take care of the whole world. 😍😍

“This time, I know what I need to do. I‘ll try not to worry so much. I‘ll be good to my fellow eggs while also being good to myself.”

I relate to this egg on a spiritual level. I wish he had been less accommodating upon his return to his “friends”, but I still loved this book.

Erofan Pretty egg! ❤ 8mo

Some fun #bookmail arrived today! 💌 Sucky weather in Nashville means a good evening to stay in and read. Okay, let‘s be honest, that‘s every Friday.

merelybookish My 7 year-old is really into Dogman these days. 11mo
britt_brooke @merelybookish 💚 My son, who‘s almost 7, has been ripping through them this week! This is the last one he needed and he‘ll have read them all. So proud of him! 11mo
ShelleyBooksie Are the unicorn books graphic novels as well? My 7 year old would really like them if so. She is all about owl diaries and princess in black. 11mo

britt_brooke @ShelleyBooksie Yes, they are. They are collections that originated from a web comic. I‘ve been reading them with my 9 year old niece and she loves them. They‘re really cute and I think would be fine for a 7 year old. In the books, Phoebe is in 4th grade. (edited) 11mo
ShelleyBooksie Thanks @britt_brooke - cannot wait to check them out. 11mo
britt_brooke @ShelleyBooksie Hope you all like them! 🦄💕 11mo
Mariposa_Bookworm Did you see the other picture book, “The Bad Seed?” It is sooooo super cute! It‘s on special at Barnes & Noble this month. 11mo

G‘s kindergarten class went on a field trip this afternoon to our local bookstore. The kids are turning their classroom into a bookshop next week, with books they created themselves, and parents will be given fake money to buy their child‘s books. So today was all about learning the ins and outs of running a book store. And at the end they got to vote for a book to be donated to their class library! The tagged book won.

JoScho How cute! 11mo
