  • I read the previous reviews which were mixed. I figured I'd get the book anyway - there had to be some good stories in it. Wrong - I've read half of it to my 89 yr old mother w/ dementia. They are depressing and it's terrible writing. I do not recommend at all. And it's a pricey book!

  • I purchased five books for the care workers at a nursing home to read to the residents. These books fit the bill - short stories, interesting stories, stories aimed at seniors.

  • Looks ideal for reading to elderly - stories are short and seem well written.

  • brilliant book to read to those with dementia. Short simple stories that can strike a chord or memory . Simply the act of being read to has a calming effect.

  • Bought this for a caregiver of an elderly couple. They loved being read to and the stories were very enjoyable.

  • I cannot stand reading these stories to my hospice patients. Some were okay some were HORRID. I finally gave up and just started reading "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" by Sharyn McCrumb - we live in Appalachia - and am much happier. I think my patients are, too. Readers Digest would have been more satisfying than this. I love to read and to be read to. These were poorly written and difficult to get excited about.

  • I skimmed thru it. Not great.

  • I was searching for some reading material that I or a caregiver who comes to my home could read to my mother. She is not able to see well enough to read and has the beginnings of dementia...I thought the stories would be happy and uplifting...I have only read a couple but both were rather dull and did not have a strong story line. I have had two of her caregivers complain that the stories were depressing and that the the book was strange....maybe it was not exactly what I was looking for...something to entertain and uplift the spirits....may not be what you are looking for.
