Thank You

From Chicken Soup for the Soul: Thanks to My Mom

Thank You

We owe huge thanks to all of our contributors. We know that you poured your hearts and souls into the thousands of stories that you shared with us, and ultimately with each other. As we read these stories, we were moved and inspired by your personal accounts of all the things that your mothers have done for you. You made us laugh, nod our heads in recognition, make note of something we want to try with our own children, and even tear up a few times.

We could only publish a small percentage of the stories that were submitted, but we read every single one and even the ones that do not appear in the book had an influence on us and on the final manuscript. We owe special thanks to assistant publisher D’ette Corona, who read all the stories submitted for this book and helped narrow down the list for us to choose the final 101. She, along with managing editor Kristiana Pastir, helped us shape, edit, and proofread the manuscript, along with senior editor Barbara LoMonaco.

We also owe a very special thanks to our creative director and book producer, Brian Taylor at Pneuma Books, for his brilliant vision for our covers and interiors.

~Amy Newmark and Jo Dee Messina
