Goodreads Synopsis:

Mindfulness takes a lot of mental energy to wrap your brain around. Gudetama is here to help you become a better person…sort of.

Empathizing with others, understanding your feelings, learning to be selfless. These all sound like really hard things to do! Well fear not, come along with Gudetama who’ll guide your way to learning things and more. Living selflessly is something many struggle with. Don’t worry, Gudetama does too, and wants to join you on your journey in finding the wonders of mindfulness. 


Gudetama is a lazy egg who gives advice. In this book, Gudetama gives people advice on how to be mindful. This includes how to treat others, how to stay organized, and how to live selflessly.

This was such a cute book. Gudetama is an adorable, lazy egg, who likes to sleep in his shell. Gudetama and his friend Nisetama help people with problems in their daily lives, such as balancing their workload or mending relationships with friends.

This was a fun book on life advice for kids and adults.

Thank you Oni Press for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
