the goodest egg of them all .
This book is absolutely amazing for children. I would definitely recommend it for anyone to read.
Very educaional book, I recommend it for all people for all ages. if you are really really bored
This is the story of a good little egg who lives with eleven other eggs who just aren't quite as well-behaved. Trying to get them to be good is exhausting and when he realizes he is literally cracking under the pressure, he leaves and goes on a journey to find himself again. Ok, I love this book. It's subtly all about self-awareness and mental health and taking care of yourself and learning that it's ok to not be perfect. There are examples of self-care included and I basically think everyone should take a quick moment to read this cute little storybook just for the reminder! Otherwise, it's a really fun and cohesive story with entertaining illustrations and a good message about self-love.
