All of the stories in Chicken Soup were great. Some of the stories were so good, that tears came to my eyes. I really liked the one about Gabe Moura, I thought it was so good, that I even went to www.livingbank.org. I still need to ask if I can sign up.

This is a great book! Sad stories, happy stories, funny stories, this book has it all! It teaches kids to grow. Sometimes you feel like you want to cry. It tells you that you should be thankful that you are alive! I especially liked "Heavan Sent" You'll love this book!

Chicken Soup for the preteen soul is my favorite book, Besides Chicken Soup for the kids soul, It is the only book that I ever read and started to cry. One story In death in dying, made my cry almost all night long Called I'll never forget him. It made me realize how lucky I am, to have a little brother, who is still alive today. Even though I might act like I hate my brother, I really love him and try to take care of him. I remember my first funeral I every went to, it was for my best friends Grandmother. When I saw her lying there I almost cried, by I tried to hold it in because, I didn't want my friend to see me crying. But now I know from another story in Chicken Soup, It is always OK, to cry. The reason I actually came to this site is because, I read the story about Gabe, and how he donated all his organs to everyone. I remember when I was younger, my grandmother was on oxygen and needed a new lung so she could breathe by herself, I would always tell my mom, " If I die Before Mall Mall, I want to give her my lungs." This is one of my favorite books, and I am looking in to getting more Chicken Noodle soup books for my birthday!!

I think this book is a good book to read because you can just skip around in it and you don't have to read it in order. There are a lot of good stories in it about life, Friendship, Love and lots more. I really enjoy reading this book and I recommend it for kids who like to read short stories.
