Chicken Soup for the Soul: Family Matters Review & Giveaway

Photobucket
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Family Matters
By: Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hasen, Amy Newmark and Susan M. Heim
Foreword by:Bruce Jenner

101 Unforgettable Stories about Our Nutty but Lovable Families

Nearly everyone thinks their own family is "nutty" or has at least one or two nuts. With 101 stories of wacky yet lovable relatives, funny foibles, and holiday meltdowns along with more serious stories about abuse and outbursts, this book is usually hilarious and occasionally poignant. Readers will feel comforted, amused, and encouraged by these unforgettable stories about "nutty" families just like their own. This book shows readers that we all have the same family matters and what really matters is families. It is a quirky and fun holiday book, and a great bridal shower or wedding gift!

I love this book. This is another great Chicken Soup for the Soul Book. Like all the other Chicken Soup for the Soul books I have read, this book has so many great and inspirational stories. I love how you can read the whole book or if time doesn't allow-you can read just a few pages at a time. I really enjoyed reading this book and recognizing some of my family members in these stories. You will laugh and marvel at stories about weddings, funerals and those special family get togethers. You may even find out that your family is not that nutty after all.


This book may be purchased through Amazon.
