Some of these chicken soup stories are schmaltzy to the max, but still I was in tears within 5 minutes. This first one is the original collection, I think.
A Lot More Chicken Soups for the Soul. Or Chicken Soup for the Souls?
There are a ton of Chicken Soup for the Soul varieties you can borrow from the Internet Archive: Chicken Soup for the College Soul, Cat Lover’s Soul, Dog Lover’s Soul, Teenage Soul — it just doesn’t stop. I mean, Chicken Soup for the Nascar Soul?
There are even versions in Chinese, Vietnamese, French (Bouillon de Poulet pour l’Ame)…. Have fun browsing the 560 search results.
