Hi Everyone! It's July in Albumen and the Eggs are getting a lesson in confidence. What helps us to have confidence and how can we model that for our kids? Benedict and Peggy both found confidence through encouragement of others. That can apply to us as well!
Hi Kids! It's July in Albumen and the Eggs are enjoying some fireworks. They decide to enter a contest to help raise money for the kids at the Albumen Children's Hospital. Let's see how they find their confidence . . .
Honesty IS the best policy! Benedict learns this the hard way in Chapter 10. Helping our kids keep this virtue first and foremost in their lives will give them a happy life!

Hi Everyone - we're in Chapter 9 where the Eggs, namely Benedict, learns a lesson in responsibility. We all want our kids to be responsible, but how can we model this for them? By example, of course! I hope you find some helpful tips here!
Hi Kids! Here we go - Chapter 9 and the Eggs are getting ready for their baseball championship! See how Benedict learns about being responsible, but not before he gets distracted and loses his focus. Does he fix the situation or give up?
Respecting the earth, animals, and especially people are all important actions for kids to learn. We see Benedict getting a lesson in respecting the earth when his dog, Scrambler, gets into some trouble. We can all help our kids learn the importance of respect from every angle of life. When we model this virtue, kids will, too.
Hi Kids! In Chapter 8, it's April in Albumen! The Eggs are going to learn about the environment and how to keep it clean, but, as you can guess, Benedict is not on board with this idea. He gets a tough lesson in respecting the Earth when something awful happens to his dog, Scrambler!
Teaching our kids acceptance can be as easy as how we model it for others. Sometimes, though, children can be much more accepting than adults. In The Good Eggs, Chapter 7, Benedict needed to learn a little something about acceptance, and Peggy listened to her parents about accepting their situation, too. Kids and adults can influence each other when it comes to this important virtue!
Spring is arriving in Albumen and baseball season is about to start! The Eggs are eager to begin practice, but first Benedict needs to learn a lesson in Acceptance. Peggy returns and has also learned how to accept something. . .

Seggourney said it best, "Love works best when it is given away!"
Hi Kids! It's February in Albumen and the Eggs are learning about love! They finished performing their play from last month, and are working on an idea for Ms. Poach's Valentine's Day Gift. But - before that happens, an important lesson is learned by Benedict and Peggy.
