Things related to Jo Dee Messina that are good for the soul include: her music; her personality; her confidence; her drive; her sense of humor; and, now, her new book. That’s right, Jo Dee isn’t just a celebrated songwriter and a “mommy blogger,” she is also a bonafide book author with her first project, Thanks to My Mom: 101 Stories of Gratitude, Love, and Lessons, hitting shelves and e-book distributors on March 17th.
Thanks to My Mom is the next installment of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, cowritten by Chicken Soup Publisher, Editor-in-Chief, and Author, Amy Newmark. During a recent South Florida show, Jo Dee explained that everybody has a different mother, and even those who share a mother have unique perspectives and distinguished stories with that parent, based on varying bonds. A book that will resonate with parents and children, Thanks to My Mom will have stories for everyone and will speak to all types of mother/child relationships.
The Amazon.com page dedicated to Jo Dee’s newest project describes the piece of work as follows:
A mother’s job is never done, but in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Thanks to My Mom, she gets the praise she deserves! Children of all ages share their words of thanks in these 101 stories of love, learning, and gratitude to the woman they couldn’t have done without!
This new collection is filled with heartwarming and entertaining anecdotes by grateful children, all in praise of the woman who encourages them, supports them, and most importantly, loves them. These stories will brighten any mother’s day, and show her that the kids were paying attention after all.
