Great gift for any mom or yourself! April 5 2010
By Cherise Kachelmuss - Published on
Format: Paperback
Being the first of five kids, I was not the only child begging for my moms attention. And throughout my teenage years when I would tell her how much I hate her, I now laugh because I don't even go a day without talking to her! Then when I had my own sons and they started needing me, I realized how great it is to be a mom, even when I have to change poopy diapers and clean up vomit! Moms really are important, great, and know everything! Well this Chicken Soup book is adorable. It made me laugh, cry, think about my mom, and appreciate my kids.

The book is broken down first into sections including: Following in Her Footsteps, Mom Knows Best, Making Sacrifices, Favorite Moments, Mom to the Rescue, What Goes Around Comes Around, One of a Kind, Gifts of the Heart, and My Mother's Legacy. Each section then has personal stories relating to the topic. I love that I can pick up this book anytime and read a section I am looking for guidance or just need at the time. I have also been randomly picking up the book and reading stories, which is especially easy for a busy mom since they are only a few pages long. Some of the stories are exactly what I needed to make myself feel better and laugh.

This book would make a great Mother's Day present or just a present for any special mom in your life!

Decent Collection of Stories May 28 2010
By Jeremy A. Giles - Published on
Format: Paperback
I recently purchased the Thanks Mom volume of Chicken Soup for the Soul around Mother's Day this year. My mom passed away in a car accident about a month before Mother's Day last year and I thought the book would have some interesting anecdotes about the special bonds between mothers and children. Some of the stories were great, but many like another reviewer said were slower to get to the point. Some were downright dull and some put a lump in my throat. I have read other Chicken Soup for the Soul books and while this one was very good, I think the selection of stories could have been better. I did like one of the later ones where the mom tells her son she had to come to his games because he was there. What a sweet story that put a smile on my face and my heart. More stories like this one would have been much appreciated. A good book nonetheless.

This book makes you appreciate moms in a whole new way March 24 2013
By Joan - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Moms impact the way we think, our way of looking at life, how we appreciate and protect our environment and how we grow relationships and make decisions. Sometimes it's through the simplest daily acts, perhaps picking up trash while taking us on a visit to the zoo, which stays with us forever and shapes us as adults. Being a mom can sometimes feel like a thankless unnoticed job. This book gives moms everywhere a new sense of how important their job really is in our lives.

Best Mom's Gift March 3 2010
By JotandTittle - Published on
Format: Paperback
After picking up THANKS MOM and reading an incredible story (that brought me to tears), I bought two copies, one for my mom and one for a friend who is a mother. A great gift book. Chicken Soup does it again -- two stories before bed is the best medicine after a tough day.
