May & June Books: Chicken Soup

What can I say?  LOL!!  I know these books are probably not the best pick as a good read to review since it is rather obvious what they are about and what they are designed for but I must point out that there are a lot of these Chicken Soup books and I think it comes down to which one to pick to read.  In May, I read Chicken Soup for the Mother and Son Soul, and in June, I read Chicken Soup for the Mother and Daughter Soul, both by Jack Canfield et al.

I used to read these books just for something to read and read them when I was much younger because I liked the stories of romance and love and do-gooders.  Now that I am a mom, I came across the ones for moms but these two especially caught my interest.  I was interested in that bond between children and their mothers, especially the ones with sons because they tend to identify more with dads, so I was curious.  I love my children deeply and I know that my bond with my daughter is cemented because I am a girl and I can pass on my girl experiences to her and to a huge extent, I know what to expect.  However, my bond with my son is one I cherish precisely because of what I don’t know because I am not a boy.  So I admit that the book on sons was a bit more fascinating.

The stories are short, sweet, and to the point.  I love how they really explore the fragile, unbreakable, mysterious thread between a mother and her children without spelling it out, rather, letting the stories speak for themselves.  Of course, there were stories that I couldn’t identify with  such as the ones about the military or those away at college since my children are still so young but all of them have one thing in common:  a deep, unconditional love that continuously brought tears to my eyes.

If you are in-between books and want to read something light, these or other Chicken Soup books are highly recommended.
