Chicken Soup: New Moms Review & Giveaway*CLOSED*



Avery was born May 9th 2007 (yes just over a week until she's 4!) And Mother's Day was May 13th 2007. Jon bought me the Chicken Soup for the Soul: New Moms Book! It was perfect timing and it was a great thoughtful gift from him.

I really enjoyed reading that book and it was awesome to read stories of other new mother's and go through what they were going through. I read this book in about a week (I was also in school and raising a newborn and a housewife! WHEW) So it took a little bit of time to read it. A few weeks later I would go "so this is what those moms were talking about" when something happened. I found myself always looking back in the book and reading the stories and how they coped with things.

It was truly inspriational.
Here's the copy I had first

I LOVE that this book came at a great time in my life. I had the 2007 edition with Avery and just a few days after getting this book found out I was expecting #2. So it came at a great time. I'll put it on a bookshelf and read it shortly before/after baby's born. 

I haven't read through it at all, but I'm sure there's a bunch of new stories in there and whether you're a BRAND new mom or a New Mom for the third time, Everyone can get something out of this book.

You also might recognize the editor on there Susan M. Heim?!?! NO? She's a fellow blogger. You can find her here Susan Heim on Parenting. How awesome?? I know she reads my blog, hope she sees this shout out!

Price: You can find this book for $9.13 at Walmart or $10.17 at Amazon! It's cheap and Mother's day is coming up. It would be a great gift!!

Overall: *****
