Chicken Soup for the Soul giveaway #1
Last month Merritt with Phenix & Phenix Literary Publicists offered to send me a couple of new Chicken Soup for the Soul books to review. He sent some extras for me to give away to my readers too! :)

This week, I'm going to review is the newly released, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Like Mother, Like Daughter book.

Stories about the Special Bond between Mothers and Daughters

How often have you seen a teenage girl pretend to be perturbed, but secretly smile, when she is told that she acts or looks just like her mother? Fathers, brothers, and friends shake their head in wonder as girls “turn into their mothers.” This book contains the 101 best stories from Chicken Soup’s library on the mother-daughter bond. Mothers and daughters will laugh, cry, and find inspiration in these stories that remind them of their mutual appreciation.

My review:  This book is fantastic!  Now that I'm a mother of a little girl, I read these short stories and found myself praying that my daughter and I will have the kind of close relationship throughout the years that will stand the test of time and the teenage years!  Thankfully, right now my 2 year old thinks the world revolves around me, but I know that won't last forever.  She's already quite the independent little miss.

These mother/daughter stories were very touching and uplifting!  I savored this book little-by-little, reading a story here and there when I had some quiet time.  I'd highly recommend this book as a gift to yourself, your mom, or someone you love!

Now for the giveaway.

If you'd like to win a copy of this book for your very own, just leave me a comment.  I'll choose a winner this Saturday morning.

All I ask is, if you're a blogger yourself, that you post your own review of the book after you've had the chance to read it!

Good luck!  

And stop back next week when I'll be reviewing the Chicken Soup for the Soul: Mother's & Sons book and offering one copy in another giveaway!
