This book explores self care. The egg worries about others around him so much that he starts to feel the pressure and cracks – literally. Luckily, through mindfulness, relaxation, and self care he starts to get back to normal.

The Bad Seed – by Jory John and Pete Oswald
This book is a companion to ‘The Good Egg’ and follows an unhappy ‘bad seed” that acts out, is rude and misbehaved. But, he learns self acceptance and self love and turns it around.
