Good Summer, Good Pie, Good Egg!
Hey all. It's been a while since I last posted. With my library shut down for so long, I was unable to get any new books. When they did open, I raced over and grabbed a few for my to read stack, but a pre-scheduled annual family camping vacation snuck up on me before I had a chance to read any of them.
And when we came back, farmers' market started and summer was under way. I hope you all have been keeping safe, sane, and occupied as well. Here at the Stewart Home, we've also been doing some walking, tending the flowers, tending garden, and baking. I made the first pie of the season with black raspberries from our garden.
However, I finally managed to read one of those books; and it seemed since summer has been good so far and my pie was oh so good, that I should read The Good Egg by Jory John, illustrated by Pete Oswald.
The Good Egg tells the tale of Good Egg who lives with eleven other not so perfect, not so good eggs. He tries his best to get the other eggs to change, and when he can't handle the stress of it all any more, he finally leaves the carton and goes off on his own.
But Good Egg comes to the conclusion that being perfect by oneself isn't nearly as much fun as being with others even if they aren't perfect. It's a truly fun story with delightful illustrations. And I'm always an easy mark for decorated end papers, so be sure to check those out too!
I hope you enjoyed a brief glimpse into my week as well as my foray into the kidlit world. I also hope to see you here again next Monday.
Wishes for a week full of wonder!
