Chicken Soup for the Soul: Thanks Mom Giveaway



I couldn't wait to read the Chicken Soup: Thanks Mom. I have a great relationship with my own mother and grandmother, and really wanted to read about other peoples' relationships.

A mother's job is never done, but in Thanks Mom, she gets the praise she deserves. Children of all ages share their words of gratitude and appreciation in this new collection of stories for moms. Daughters and sons retell tales of love and learning, celebrating moms, their wisdom, and all that they do. These stories of special memories, loving and hard lessons, unforgettable moments, laughter and tears, support and encouragement will bring any mom joy, inspiration, and amusement. Mothers of all ages, whether new moms, experienced moms, or grandmothers, will feel good about the recognition they receive. Expect plenty of celebrity contributors!

The book is divided into 9 sections, including Mom Knows Best, Mom to the Rescue, One of a Kind, My Mother's Legacy and more.  Discount Shopping is a cute story with a valuable lesson from mom.  The Note is a very touching story about a mother's love.  Is Anybody Dead? is another touching story, also with a valuable lesson!

I am pleased to offer a copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Thanks Mom - 101 Stories of Gratitude, Love, and Good Times  to 3 winners.

I would want to get Teacher Tales. My husband is a teacher and sometimes I think he needs a reminder of why he is doing it and be a little more compassionate with his students. :)
