Chicken Soup for the Soul: Thanks Mom

101 Stories of Gratitude, Love, and Good Times

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!

My thoughts:
This is a Great tribute to Mother's everywhere. This would make the perfect Mother's Day Gift or a Great gift for any occasion. I love reading the Chicken Soup for the Soul books because each one is made up of short stories and are easily read, especially if you don't have much time to spend reading each day. This book will make you laugh and cry and make you think of your own mother. This is a heartwarming book and any Mom would like reading this.

You can purchase this through Amazon
Stop by Chicken Soup for the Soul's website and check out all their great books.

Three of my lucky reader can win this!
