With the release of the 20th anniversary of Chicken Soup for the Soul, they have also released Chicken Soup for the Soul: Reader’s Choice 20th Anniversary Edition. I am so excited to be reviewing this new book featuring stories that have been shared over the years and stories readers found themselves coming back to again and again.
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Reader’s Choice 20th Anniversary Edition
Even after 20 years, Chicken Soup for the Soul is sharing new and touching stories with readers. This special anniversary edition shows the special power of storytelling. Readers share their experience with a story from a Chicken Soup for the Soul book, and how it made a difference in their lives – paired with the original story.
I found Chicken Soup for the Soul when I was in middle school and I quickly read through all the “Chicken Soup for the Soul Teen stories” – it was fun to find stories I could relate to, stories to learn about things other people are going through, and stories that showed me how different so many other teens like me live. Now that I have been reviewing Chicken Soup for the Soul and reading again, I can see how these stories affect and even change the lives of readers. They help us remember people in our lives, appreciate what we have been gifted with, and learn more about others. I think reading the stories of others – especially when they relate to our lives in a special way – is the best way to learn how to help and appreciate others.
