Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a story that opens up dialogue about our reactions to life experiences, the consequences of our choices, and the chance to make a change for the better."

-- "School Library Journal (starred review)"

"Young readers will enjoy watching the dramatic seed intimidate his nervous neighbors, and might not even realize they're learning a lesson about good behavior in the process."

-- "Booklist"

"A thoughtful, candid look at self-reflection."

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

"Readers will be giggling nonstop."

-- "Librarian's Quest on The Good Egg"

This book looks brand new but was very poorly bound together. I was excited to read it to my class at school and two pages fell out during my first reading at home! I will be returning.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Instant Favorite in our Household!
Reviewed in the United States on April 28, 2020
My 3.5 year old daughter loves story time. During these COVID-19 extended days at home, I wanted to get some new books. Both the author John Jory and Pete Oswald the Illustrator of this book are fantastic. This book is part of a three book series. I first purchased the The Cool Beans, followed by the Bad Seed and then finally the Good Egg to complete the set. My daughter's favorite of the three book series is the Bad Seed, followed by the Cool Beans, and finally the Good egg but she likes them all. I highly recommend this entire series.

As a mom, I like that the books are also educational. They touch on emotions, feelings, how those emotions/behaviors are received and how you can alter change your emotions. It also gives them great life examples of good, bad and cool behaviors which is great with navigating a toddler through all the different emotions that they go through. She also understands that you can be happy, sad, angry. I like that the Cool Beans touches on kindness and acceptance of others. Kids need kindness!

Three Book Series
The Cool Beans (My daughter's second favorite)
The Bad Seed (My daughter's favorite of the set)
The Good Egg (My daughter's third favorite)
