Book Description

Oct. 12 2000 Chicken Soup for the Soul (Pb)

From remembering their own life experience or to watching their own children grow, most people recognize that the preteen years, ages nine to thirteen, can be one of the most awkward times in life-a period of tremendous physical and emotional change. At this age, youngsters are eager to leave the "kid" stage, yet are uncertain about what adolescence will bring; they'd rather listen to peers over parents, and hear all too often to "wait until you're older." Chicken Soup for the Preteen Soul will guide kids through this transition.

Written by and for preteens, this uplifting collection of stories touches on the emotions and situations they experience every day: making and losing friends, fitting in while keeping their personal identity, discovering the opposite sex, dealing with pressures at school including violence, and coping with family issues such as divorce.

Chapters include: On Love, On Family, On Friendship, On Choices, On Changes, On Overcoming Obstacles, Eclectic Wisdom, Tough Stuff, Attitude and Perspective and Achieving Dreams. Contributors indclude: *NSYNC, Mia Hamm, Beverley Mitchell and Karl Malone.

Whether first-time Chicken Soup readers or "graduates" of the bestselling Kid's Soul book, preteens are sure to include this in their backpacks and book bags.

Product Description

From Amazon

Inspired by the many readers of Chicken Soup for the Kid's Soul (one of many in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series), the authors decided to reach out to young people at that incredibly confusing, exciting chapter of life, the preteen years. Readers between the ages of 9 and 12 (give or take a year) sometimes felt that the book for kids was too young, while the edition for teens (Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul) was too old. In this warm, supportive anthology of true stories by and about preteens, the very issues that seem so complicated and insurmountable are addressed with intelligence and openness. Divorce, violence, death, friendships, school, family, attitudes, changes, dreams... preteens have a lot to offer and a lot to learn on these subjects. Many of the brief essays, cartoons, quotations, and introductions are witty as well as wise and touching; readers might devour the book from start to finish, drop in for a story here and there, or focus on a concern that is most important at the moment. The preteen years seem to be the perfect time to reach kids, before they are lost in teen angst and coolness. And who better to learn from than their own peers? For some added incentive to read, celebrities such as Mia Hamm, Karl Malone, and 'N Sync have contributed essays as well. (Ages 9 to 13) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-7-Like other titles in the "Chicken Soup" series, this volume contains numerous short pieces of verse and prose, interspersed with comic strips of "Calvin & Hobbes," "Family Circus," and "Dennis the Menace," as well as pithy quotations selected as lead-ins to some of the pieces. The writings are grouped under headings such as "Achieving Dreams," "Overcoming Obstacles," "On Choices," and "Eclectic Wisdom" (for the bits that didn't fit elsewhere?). They are intended to encourage, inspire, and comfort. Each of the stories carries an author's name, and those written by young people give an age as well. Snail mail and e-mail addresses are included for those who want to respond to the book or submit stories and poems of their own. Children who loved Chicken Soup for the Kid's Soul (Health Communications, 1998) will no doubt welcome another serving.

I bought this as a present for my younger sister who belongs to the preteen age category suggested in the book. These anecdotes were meant to encourage her to read while enlightening her about the pains, triumphs and hardships that life brings. Its purpose was fulfilled. She read the book without hesitation. I recommend it to any other preteen!

The book contains loads of stories of tennagers who survived all this stuff, and acomplished dreams. It's really cool that such book exists that we can read stories of all these adolecents who want to share a storie with us. Some are funny, some are life learning. There are mostly sad stories in the book than anything else, but there good ones! Justdont get me rong, they dont soak the book. It's a nice book and I thing all the teens should read it, to know that there not alone.

This was a book that whenever you picked it up it touched your heart. It is hard to think that some preteens have to go through what they did. Laugh, cry, get mad, you will eventually do all of this when you pick up this book. I recomend this book to everyone that is having a hard time in their preteen days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every Preteen Needs This Book!! Feb. 25 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is probably one of the greatest books I have ever read. Before I got it, I thought I was going through stuff that no one could relate to. After reading it for just a little while, I realized I wasn't alone.
The sections in this book are Achieving Dreams, On Friendship, On Family, On Love, On Death and Dying, On Attitude and Perspective, Overcoming Obstacles, On Choices, On Tough Stuff, On Changes, and Eclectic Wisdom. You will laugh, cry, feel thankful, feel bad, and you can relate to some of the stories. Celebrities Mia Hamm, Karl Malone, Beverly Mitchell, and the members of *NSYNC add their feelings and stories to the books.
I don't think you can be too young or too old to read this book. I have read parts to my parents, and they felt exactly the same way I did. My younger brother also enjoyed it. The book is narated with cartoons like the Family Circus, Calvin and Hobbes, and Dennis the Menace.
After reading this book, I felt better about making new friends, my life, and the tragadies and unexpected things about being a preteen. I hope you do to.
