My Thoughts:

I had read Power Moms previously, so when I was sent his book to review, I liked being able to revisit inspirational stories I had read a few years back.  This book is a re-issue of Power Moms and contains the same stories - so, if you have read or own Power Moms, no need to buy this newer copy.  With that being said, I enjoyed this book even more now, as I am now a mom, and wasn't when I read it.  I ended up reading it a few years back on vacation and this was the only book that looked interesting.  Now, however, I could relate to many of the stories, which made me tear up, laugh and think ahead about what I have in store with my daughters as they grow up.  It was hard to choose a favorite story. But, I can say that my favorite sections were "Daily Grind" and "Gender Benders."  It was nice reading stories from other stay-at-home/work-at-home moms who struggle with juggling work and family life.  And, with the "Gender Benders" section, each short story is written by men, sharing this love and admiration for the moms and women in their lives. 

Overall, this is a great book for any mother who enjoys inspirational stories and titles from the Chicken Soup for the Soul series.
