I love the Chicken Soup for the Soul Books. It is so nice to be able to read something and walk away feeling good! Well, Chicken Soup for the Soul strikes again! I had the opportunity to review 3 new books, (1) Chicken Soup for the Soul: Teens Talk Middle School, (2) Chicken Soup for the Soul: Teens Talk High School, and (3) Chicken Soup for the Soul: Teens Talk Getting In To College. All are written by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Amy Newmark, and Madeline Clapps.
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Teens Talk Middle School is an excellent book both for Middle School-aged teens and their parents. It’s been referred to by some as a “support group in a book” and is written by Middle School aged teens (who better to understand than those your age). Some of the topics include “True Friends and New Friends,” “Embarrassing Moments,” “Bully Payback,” “Being Happy With Yourself,” “Doing What’s Right,” and more! This is a perfect gift for your teen at graduation or just because!
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Teens Talk High School is another excellent book for High School teens and their parents (again written by high schoolers for high schoolers). It has been referred to as a “portable support group you can carry in your backpack!” Some of the topics include “Happy to Be Me,” “Dating, Crushes, and Just Friends,” “Doing the Right Thing,” “Family Ups and Downs,” “Overcoming Challenges,” and more!
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Teens Talk Getting In..To College is a great book for High School teens who are going through the process of searching for the right college, applying, and waiting for the results. Applying for colleges and waiting for acceptance letters, as well as preparing for the real world can be very stressful for teens and create a lot of anxiety. Your High School teen will love this book because it is written by those who have gone through the college process and SURVIVED! This book would make a great graduation gift or just because!
