Chicken Soup for the Soul book reviews (PLUS 4 giveaways)

Chicken Soup for the Soul are great books for their personal stories, reflections and experiences. I love the line of books for Mothers, and with Mother's Day quickly approaching, I thought it would be a great time to review these books. Both of these books 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.
Mothers and Daughters share such a special bond, and the Chicken Soup for the Soul: Like Mother, Like Daughter book will warm your heart with the stories that inspire, amuse, and remind you of the connection between Mom and Daughter. You will read stories about: the bond between mothers and daughters, the similarities between the two, the transformation from roles as parent/child to friends, the change between mom taking care of daughter to daughter taking care of mom, the inner strength that the daughter carries from her mother, and the unconditional love between grandmothers and granddaughters. 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. (released September 2008 with a SRP $14.95)

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Moms & Sons celebrates the special relationship between mothers and sons. 101 best stories, poems, and inspirations are packed in this new book from Chicken Soup. This book is honoring the lifelong relationship between mothers and their male offspring. Heartfelt and loving stories written by mothers, grandmothers, and son, about each other, span generations and show how the mother-son bond transcends time. Mothers ans sons will enjoy these heartwarming, sometimes humorous, sometimes poignant stories from the best of Chicken Soup's library. You will read about: interesting adventures in raising boys, mom being a "sport," grateful sons, being a single mom, adopting a son, and funny boy moments. 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" is available online and in bookstores. Be sure to check it out at Target before Mother's Day to get a special discount price. (released September 2008 for a SRP $14.95)

Last week, my mom had so much stuff scheduled, so as a way to show her we love her, my son and I cooked dinner for her and my dad, and took over a few nice things for her (book, card) just because.

I recently made cookies and food for both my mom and dad, so they would have some food in the house. They have been living in Germany and had to come home unexpectedly due to a death in the family.
