Giveaway ~ Chicken Soup for the Soul Chicken Soup for the Soul


The ever popular Chicken Soup for the Soul books are honoring moms for Mother's Day right now.

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Like Mother, Like Daughter: Stories about the Special Bond between Mothers and Daughters and Chicken Soup for the Mother and Son Soul: Stories to Celebrate the Lifelong Bond


In honor of moms everywhere, both titles are now available at Target for a special discounted price until Mother's Day on May 10. Both seek to honor moms, as they offer heartwarming, hilarious tales from moms and their loved ones. If you don't have a Target or can't get to one, they are very reasonably priced on Amazon as well!


1. "Chicken Soup for the Soul: Like Mother, Like Daughter" (September 2008 $14.95)

There is a special bond between a mother and her daughter that, in the vast scope of human relationships, is unparalleled. Sometimes fragile and tenuous but at once as enduring as the Rockies, it is a relationship that is neither static nor shallow. It is evolving and forever—a deep and eternal wellspring.In her daughter, a mother sees her hopes and expectations; fulfillment, perhaps, of her dreams and a journey down the road not taken. From her first breath, a daughter opens new vistas for her mother to reach beyond herself. In her mother, a daughter sees her foundation; her history and the lives of all those women who came before her. She sees herself and understands what it means to be a woman.

From borrowed outfits to goofy mannerisms, there is a time when most women must sheepishly admit, "I'm turning into my mother." But while our uncanny connections can draw us closer, sometimes these similarities can drive us up the wall. To help your readers navigate to complexities of their mother-daughter relationships, "Chicken Soup for the Soul: Like Mother, Like Daughter," (Chicken Soup for the Soul, September 30, 2008, 978-1935096-07-8, $14.95) provides a collection of stories written by moms and daughters on maternal wisdom, raising teenage girls, becoming friends with Mom, grandmothers, granddaughters, and more.

2. "Chicken Soup for the Soul: Moms & Sons" (September 2008 $14.95)

As numerous mothers know, raising boys can be an adventure. From baby blue blankets to first wedding dances, sons provide their mothers immeasurable amounts of joy - not to mention bruised knees to clean, rambunctious friends, and good-natured teasing. Written for mothers and "mama's boys" everywhere, "Chicken Soup for the Soul: Moms and Sons" (Chicken Soup for the Soul Publishing, LLC., 978-1-935096-16-0, September 2008, $14.95) offer glimpses into the touching - and often funny - interactions between mothers and their boys, as grateful sons, single moms, and loving grandmothers all chime in to add their voices to this new collection.

I have two copies of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Like Mother, Like Daughter: Stories about the Special Bond between Mothers and Daughters to giveaway. To enter tell me something you love about being a mom or something you love about your mom!

Contest will end on May 12th at 11:59pm

What I admire about my Mom is how much she sacrificed while bringing me up, but never ever made me realise what she was losing. She wanted to be a librarian, but gave it up to be a full-time mom. I love and respect her for what she did.

I love being a mom. I have a wonderful daughter and I love teaching her about life and everything that comes with it. She is 20 now and gets more wonderful everyday. I love the long talks we have and the things we share. I wish only one thing...that she had siblings.

I simply love it when my kids call me "mom" and all the little variations they like to call me (mommy, mama, mami).

I love most everything about being a mom. I love doing things with my kids and spending quality time with them. I love their unconditional love. I love cuddling with them. I love seeing the world through their eyes.

I love everything about being a mom. My daughter is 10 and she is my miracle baby. Before she arrived, I had over 10 miscarriages and was becoming very depressed. After she arrived, I felt like my life had meaning again and I can honestly say that I love even the yucky stuff...because God chose to bless me with her! Thanks

I love being a mom. I have three girls. 18, 6, and 4. My 18 year old and I have just reconnected after a four year battle of teenager angst. My little girls love her and love when she's over. She's staying with us now and it's so nice to be a happy family.
