Over the last few months I have been writing reviews on the Chicken Soup for the Soul books over on Frugal Plus. I’m going to continue writing these reviews, however I’m now going to be reviewing them here at Living to the Fullest. The first book I will be reviewing is Chicken Soup for the Soul: All in the Family.
About the book
101 Incredible Stories about Our Funny, Quirky, Lovable & “Dysfunctional” Families
Almost everyone thinks their own family is “dysfunctional” or at least has a dysfunctional member or two. These stories of wacky yet lovable relatives, holiday meltdowns, and funny foibles, along with more serious stories about abuse, controlling family members, and flare-ups, show readers that they aren’t alone. All in the Family is a quirky and fun holiday book, and a great bridal shower or wedding gift! Norman Rockwell’s famous “Freedom from Want” Thanksgiving family painting appears on the back cover and is lovingly parodied on the front, driving home the point that all our families, no matter how much we love them, are just a little dysfunctional!
