Summer Reading Giveaway: "Chicken Soup for the Soul: Be the Best You Can Be" (3 Winners)

I'm sure you've heard the news by now that students experience a "summer slide" -- a loss of reading skills -- when they fail to read over the summer break. But for some kids, an entire book can feel overwhelming. That's why Chicken Soup for the Soul's books for kids are perfect for reluctant readers. They contain brief short stories (usually 2-4 pages) that are not only interesting to read, but teach kids about topics like tolerance, compassion and respect. Fortunately, Chicken Soup for the Soul has a new selection out that is perfect for beating this summer's slide. Read on to learn more about this title and then enter to win a print copy of the book!

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Be the Best You Can Be
Start a conversation with the children in your life! Read about goals and hard work, compassion and tolerance, values and good choices. In this collection of relevant, true-life personal stories, you'll meet great role models for today's youth. Read chapters about:
  • making your best effort
  • doing the right thing
  • accepting differences
  • appreciating your family
  • handling bullies
  • having confidence in yourself
  • being generous
  • making true friends
  • accepting responsibility
  • being kind
  • being grateful
  • getting through tough times
One of the stories that put tears in my eyes was written by a girl with cerebral palsy who shared how kids tease her because of her disabilities and how it's "not fun to be made fun of over something that I can't control." Another story told about how a girl coped with giving away her dog. He had grown too big for their home, but became happily settled at his new home on a farm. This book is filled with stories that kids can relate to and often experience in their own lives. I hope you'll pick up a copy for your young reader today!
