This book is made up of your typical 101 stories, around the central theme of mom this time. There is one difference with these stories than most other Chicken Soup books I've received to review: all the stories have already been published in other Chicken Soup books. It is kind of a best of type book.
Enjoy 101 stories from Chicken Soup for the Soul’s library on the celebration of mothers and motherhood. With heartwarming stories by mothers and their children of gratefulness, love, inspiration and laughter, this book does what we so often fail to do – say “I Love You, Mom”, making it a great gift not just for Mother’s Day, but always.We like the stories and my son has enjoyed reading them, too, as they are safe for a nine-year old to read. He actually recognized some of the stories from other titles and hadn't noticed the big pink block on the cover that mentions the repurposing. The book makes a great gift for Mother's Day and all the royalties will benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
As previously mentioned, the giveaway will have three winners, each getting their own copy of the Chicken Soup for the Soul: for Mom, with Love title. The giveaway runs through 5/7/16 at 11:59pm EDT and I'll draw the winner's on Mother's Day. It is open to residents of the US and Canada who are 18+. (All these Chicken Soup book giveaways should typically be open to Canada residents. If I ever forget, please remind me and I'll correct.)
