For Mom, with Love - Amy Newmark

About the Book:

Enjoy 101 stories from Chicken Soup for the Soul’s library on the celebration of mothers and motherhood. With heartwarming stories by mothers and their children of gratefulness, love, inspiration and laughter, this book does what we so often fail to do – say “I Love You, Mom”, making it a great gift not just for Mother’s Day, but always.




My Thoughts:

Just in time for Mother's Day, a new Chicken Soup book full of beautiful mother-related stories! One of my favourite stories was written by April Knight. She describes a time when she was a teenager and had to spend the summer with her ailing Grandma who she hardly knew and who lived hundreds of miles away. I admired April for agreeing to give up her summer of fun for 'the worst summer of her life'. As much as she hated missing out on all the summer fun with her friends, in the end, her outlook changes when Grandma shares some of her childhood memories. This is just one of the many stories in this collection that almost anybody can relate with or draw some inspiration from.

In exchange for an honest review Shelton Interactive and Simon and Schuster provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.
