Summary

The Good Egg by Jory John

The Good Egg tries to act perfectly all the time. When the other eggs in his carton behave badly, he tries to take charge and fix their bad behavior. All his worrying is making his head feel scrambled. When he discovers cracks in his shell, the Good Egg knows he must make some changes in his life. Students will make connections with the Good Egg and his problem, as they also practice synthesizing, understanding text structure, asking questions, and making predictions.
