Chicken Soup for the Soul: Thanks Dad Giveaway


Even though I have been a big blog slacker, I couldn't wait to read the Chicken Soup: Thanks Dad. My dad and I have gone through some ups and downs, but I am lucky to have him and let's face it, everyone loves the guy!!

This book gives fathers the pat on the back they deserve. Children of all ages share their heartfelt words of thanks and loving memories in this collection of 101 new stories. Personal accounts of learning from Dad's example and lasting lessons, special moments and memorable outings, encouragement and expectations will bring any father joy, inspiration, and laughs. Whether the reader is a new dad, a father to one or more, a father of teens, a father of grown children, or a grandfather, these heartwarming and humorous stories will resonate with him. He may even find that his kids did pay attention after all! Expect plenty of celebrity contributors!!

The book is divided into 10 sections, including Lessons for Life, Through Thick and Thin, Everyday Heroes, Truly Grand Dads and more.  The Silver Flute is a cute story that caught my eye because I was in band in high school and was very supported by both of my parents.  Johnny caught my eye next and ended up making me chuckle.  Do we all have a "bad" friend named Johnny in our lives?  Good thing the auther's dad was there for her!  The Shrubbery Massacre is a very touching story, with a valuable lesson!

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