Chicken Soup For The Soul – Think Positive For Kids – Book Review
Today I’d like to introduce you to a very special book to add to your Chicken Soup For The Soul library.
If you enjoy reading the life-changing stories that Chicken Soup For The Soul readers share – and would love to share that type of inspiration with your children – then Chicken Soup For The Soul – Think Positive For Kids is for you!
Chicken Soup For The Soul – Think Positive For Kids contains 101 Stories About Good Decisions, Self-Esteem And Positive Thinking. This book is specifically designed to inspire youngsters, ages 7 to 13, to change their lives through the power of positive thinking and positive role-modeling!
There are so many things that I love about this book. First and foremost – the book is written at the same level, with the same caliber of stories, that you will find in any other Chicken Soup For The Soul book. What is different about this book is that the stories and topics in this book were all chosen with the needs and concerns of children in this age range in mind.
The stories in this book are also selected with the goal of starting conversations between adults and children about important topics, such as core values and good decision-making, that will help them in everything they do throughout their lives. The stories are meant to be beneficial regardless of whether they are shared at home or in school, and regardless of factors such as socioeconomic levels.
Here’s a peek at the types of topics you’ll find in Think Positive For Kids:
- Trying Something New
- Doing The Right Thing
- Accepting Differences
- Developing Self-Esteem
- Handling Bullies
- Appreciating Family
- Making Real Friends
- Making Good Choices
- Being Responsible
- Being Graceful
The stories in this book are fabulous – as an adult, I found them just as motivational as any child would!
But – according to Editors Kevin Sorbo and Amy Newmark – there is one final reason to buy this book:
In addition to helping your own children, grandchildren, and students, this book is going to help needy children in Los Angeles, through our contribution of royalties and proceeds from sales of this book to A World Fit For Kids, a successful mentoring program that trains teens to become heroes to the kids in their own neighborhoods by using the vehicles of school, fitness, sports, and positive role models. The program is unique because of the powerful format of “kids teaching kids” – and its success rate is astounding – working with more than 12,000 children in the Los Angeles School District, it has a 100% graduation rate in a school system that has a 54% dropout rate.
Chicken Soup For The Soul – Think Positive For Kids is a book that every child should read. Be sure to pick up your copy today – or enter our giveaway for a chance to win a copy of your own!

Stopping by from the Kid Lit Blog Hop.
I really love books that encourage dialogue between adults and children. It’s so important that kids learn to communicate with the adults in their lives and are able to form trusting relationships. It sounds like this is an excellent tool for fostering such dialogue.
You are SO right Destiny! That is one of the great things about this book!
Hi! I’m in the US and the book would be for my daughter. Yay, for the Kid Lit Blog Hop. Have a great rest of the week!

Loving the “Think Positive for Kids”! I am working to help my kids with positive thinking. Sometimes it’s hard when I am working on this for myself! Thanks for sharing at the Blog Hop Blitz!
Oh, I want this for my daughter so badly! She tends to be more pessimistic and more self-deprecating than my son and it just does her a huge disservice! My email is renee (at) motherdaughterbookreviews (dot) com. Thank you so much for sharing this giveaway in the Kid Lit Blog Hop! Tweeting…
Sounds like a great addition to the series. Kids are never too young to learn about themselves and life. Thanks for sharing on the Kid Lit Blog Hop! Cheryl, Hop Hostess
