The Chicken Soup for Little Souls series (more than 400,000 copies sold) brought the magic of Chicken Soup to young readers with heartwarming stories of love, friendship, and kindness that parents could read to their young children. Now these classic books have been resized and rewritten into intermediate-level readers that kids 6 and up can read themselves. While the text has been shortened and simplified, it retains the enduring Chicken Soup message of sincere and heartfelt virtue.
The new reader series starts with two books:
In The Best Night Out With Dad, Danny can't wait to go to the circus with his dad. It's going to be the best night ever! But the night has a surprise ending when Danny meets Victor in the ticket line.
In The Greatest Gift of All, Izzy finds out that her parents won't let her go to Pine View Camp. Her summer is ruined! But things begin to change for Izzy when she starts to do Give-back Time with Grandpa Mike and meets the Braids Girl.
With a lower price point, friendly format and the power of the Chicken Soup brand, these books will inspire children as they teach the joy of reading.
- The previous books were for parents to read to children; the new books have been shortened by approximately 25% and redesigned to make them appropriate for intermediate readers (ages 6 and up).
- The books contain 4-color illustrations throughout, including many full-page bleeds.
- The recognizable brand, along with the lower price point and smaller trim size, make this a perfect impulse purchase for busy parents.
