May is the month in which we think of and honor the mothers in our lives.  May is also the perfect month to pick up a copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Magic of Mothers & Daughters.   This is a great book, including 101 Inspirational and Entertaining Stories about that special bond that mothers and daughters share.  You can purchase a copy of this book at your local bookstore or online, retailing for $14.95.

– the bond between mothers and daughters
– how mothers and daughters become best friends
– the changing roles of mothers and daughters as they move through the stages of life
– the magical, mysterious similarities between them
– becoming mothers through adoption and step-parenting
– the lessons mothers and daughters learn from each other

CONTENTS:

MY THOUGHTS

If you’re looking for a book that talks about the bond shared between mothers and daughters, then this is the book for you!  It’s a great book for either a mother to give to her daughter or for a daughter to give to her mother.  My favorite sections of the book were “A Mother’s Love” and “The Face in the Mirror.”  A big thanks goes to Chicken Soup for the Soul Publishing for another great book in the series!
