Parenting is the hardest and most rewarding job in the world. This upbeat and compelling new book includes the best selections on parenting from Chicken Soup's rich history, with 101 stories carefully selected to appeal to both mothers and fathers.

This is a great book for couples to share, whether they are just embarking on their new adventure as parents or reflecting on their lifetime experience. Stories were written by parents about their children and by children about their parents.

There is a common thread of caring, humor, hard work, and the joy of being a parent. Older parents will laugh, cry, and nod their heads as they recognize shared experiences shaping young lives. New parents will smile as they read about the adventures yet to come.

The first Chicken Soup for the Soul book was published in 1993, and became a publishing industry sensation, ultimately selling eight million copies. Since then, more than 150 Chicken Soup titles have been published, selling more than 100 million copies.

Chicken Soup for the Soul has won dozens of awards over the past 15 years, and its founders, Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen have become celebrity motivational speakers and authors.
