Chicken Soup for the Soul (a contest!!)

When I was a first-time mom, I wanted to know if the feelings I had were those felt by every new mom. I was clearly validated after receiving a few books from the Chicken Soup for the Soul series as a gift.

You probably have read one as well. I read Chicken Soup for the Mother's Soul, and also had a day planner with affirmations and stories that were very real, emotional, and powerful.

I was elated when I received two of their books in the mail to offer as a giveaway to my blog readers!!

· Chicken Soup for the Soul: Moms Know Best (July, 2008)




· Chicken Soup for the Soul: Moms and Sons (September 2008)

Each book contains over 100 stories that will touch your heart!

Here's a little info provided to me:

Being a mom is a mind-boggling and exciting experience that's filled with discoveries (some beautiful, and some – diapers? – not so beautiful). Three of Chicken Soup's new parent titles embrace the ups and downs of being a mom, from bringing your first baby home to seeing your last child off to college – and all the spilled baby food, report cards, first dates, tears and giggles in between.

The company is currently implementing a plan to expand into all media, is working with TV networks on several TV shows and is developing a major Internet presence dedicated to life improvement, emotional support and inspiration. In 2007, /USA Today/ named /Chicken Soup for the Soul /one of the five most memorable and impactful books in the last quarter century. For more information visit: www.chickensoup.com.
