Having read The Bad Seed last year, I was eager to give The Good Egg a try. I actually like this one a little more than its predecessor... mostly because I can really relate to the main character!Goodreads Choice Awards Project: Read as many of the opening round Best Picture Book nominees as possible. 11 to go! The Good Egg book is such a brilliant story! It’s funny, timely, and is brought to life with the amazing illustrations of the oh-so-talented Pete Oswald, who also illustrated The Sad Little Fact.

This story is great for those students who tend to be the mother hens in your classroom. I feel like every school year, I have a student who falls into this category! The Good Egg encourages self-care and being able to try new things. One of my favorite things about this book is the illustrations. There are some really funny details in the pictures. And the author entertains you with fun egg puns. I think every classroom needs this book. It touches on some important issues in a fun, lighthearted way. This is one of those titles that makes me so happy to be a children's librarian. That there are such talented authors and illustrators in the world who dedicate their time to bringing joy to children and adults through such charming works is a blessing.Jory John is a #1 New York Times bestselling author and two-time E.B. White Read-Aloud Honor recipient. A veeeeeeerrryyyyy good egg spends its time helping others and trying to be perfect. It carries out good deeds… whether this is helpful or even needed is another matter!

You could also use The Good Egg to make a connection to tattling. Even though the Good Egg never tattle-tails, he IS overly concerned with everyone else’s behavior; just like the little kiddos who are always coming in after recess and lunch break with tattles about everyone and thing under the sun. The message of putting yourself before others is not what I want to teach my kids. The extreme bad behavior of the other eggs is unrealistic, and the author has the Good Egg deal with that behavior by going on a solo journey of “self care,” including going to a spa and “breathing in and out.” That type of “self care” doesn’t work in real life, so why teach it to children, furthering the selfish “world-revolves-around-me” mentality of youth today.
