Chicken Soup book includes stories by Pertler

Moms are the busiest people in the world. They juggle kids, husbands, home and office (and occasionally a ball or two). The well-loved Chicken Soup for the Soul books is celebrating the multi-talents of moms everywhere with a new book titled, “Chicken Soup for the Soul: the Multitasking Mom’s Survival Guide.”

Syndicated columnist and multitasker, Jill Pertler of Cloquet, has two stories published this new collection of 101 inspiring and amusing stories for mothers who do it all. Pertler’s story, “A Mom’s Talents Run Deep,” takes a lighthearted look at the superpowers many mothers possess, while the topic matter of her second story, “Toilet Talk,” is self-explanatory.

Busy moms will want to carve out some “me time” to relax and read the stories in this new book. From taking time for yourself and slowing down, to handling housework and juggling a career, this collection will support, inspire and entertain you as you try to do it all. Plus, you’ll pick up some great tips from other busy moms who pass on their best advice.

Chicken Soup for the Soul books have more than 250 titles, with translations into more than 40 languages. The series has sold more than 100 books in the U.S. and Canada alone.

Pertler is a syndicated columnist, author and playwright. Her column,  “Slices of Life” is published in over 130 newspapers across the nation, including the Superior Telegram.

Both books are available at area bookstores, including Barnes and Noble, or online at
