This new title from Chicken Soup for the Soul is out just in time for Mother's Day.  Thanks to My Mom is a compilation of 101 stories that celebrate moms.  By now, most people are familiar with the chicken soup series and the format, but if you have never picked one up, you might not know what makes them special.  the stores are submitted by readers and then polished and compiled into books by Chicken Soup for the Soul.

Amy Newmark teamed with Jo Dee Messina to put this one together.  Jo Dee is a platinum award winning country music artist and I have linked to her web page in the bullet points.  She also wrote the book's introduction and the first short story of the first chapter.  The String that Binds Our Hearts is  a tribute to her own mother in which she shares her mother's lifelong message to her. The message was that there would always be a string attaching their hearts even if they were far apart, experiencing hard times, in life and even in death. (Yes, you should keep your tissues handy!)

There are nine chapters to enjoy:
  1. Great Role Models
  2. Rising to the Challenge
  3. Maternal Mischief
  4. Love and Acceptance
  5. The Best Cheerleaders
  6. The Wisdom of Mothers
  7. Mom Was Right
  8. My Mother the Teacher
  9. The Other Moms in Our Lives
With Mother's Day right around the corner, this would be a sweet gift.  the last chapter also pays tribute to stepmothers, grandmothers, in-laws, foster mothers and adoptive moms.
