Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Gift of Love
With 100 million copies sold, 120 titles and 39 languages, “Chicken Soup for the Soul(R) has made international publishing history. This DVD features two “Chicken for the Soul(R) inspirational short films.
“Mrs. Wetherby’s Treasure” – When two enchanting nine-year-old little girls notice a kindly old woman mysteriously arrive on their quiet street, they rush to see if they can help. The magic that comes of their Innocent love and generosity leads them to a discovery not only for them, but for the entire neighborhood.
“Dear Grandmother” – N.Y. fashion coordinator, Cilia Davis, receives unexpected news – her mother, whom she has never known, has died suddenly and she’s been appointed guardian of her half-sister Merry, an uprooted twelve-year-old with an attitude and an airplane phobia. The cross-country trip that follows delivers many surprises, bringing Celia and Merry to a place that neither expected.
“Chicken Soup for the Soul” contained two great short stories that would be ideal for showing at a church, school, or small group function in order to start a meeting or wrap one up. The story lines were easy to follow, had good morals and people learned things about themselves and others that would make them grow spiritually and help them become better people. The films contained some wonderful scenery. Although the acting was a little weak I believe the storyline and the lessons learned make up for it.
