Chicken Soup for the Soul: Family Matters

Gift Guide Pick

Family Matters, and we all have great stories to tell!  People everywhere gain so much from the encouragement of Chicken Soup for the Soul books, but this one shares laughter above all.

Read Bruce Jenner’s story about his own Jenner/Kardashian family, and then join him in reading about everyone else’s family! 

These outrageous but true stories about wacky but lovable in-laws, siblings, husbands and wives, children, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and families in general.

You’ll laugh and marvel at stories of funerals, weddings, holidays, and all those other times when “everyone gets together.”  And you’ll be amused by the crazy events of day-to-day life too. 

This is an amazing read.  I loved the stories in it.  It helps put your own family in perspective.  Some of them reminded me of my own sometimes ‘dysfunctional’ family or the funny things my mother, father and grandparents have done in the past.  Thanks for the memories, Chicken Soup for the Soul contributors.  I know that I am a product of my family, and really…I’m not so bad…so they must not be either!

It was even an inspiration to me to remember to put down on paper the funny things that happen in our home.

This is a great gift to give to a family member for Christmas too.

So come on in and meet the family!  And watch out for the nuts.
