Childhood Days in Pictures Summary

Childhood Days in Pictures by Edited by Helen Bate

When someone has dementia, traditional books can become incomprehensible and meaningless. This title from the popular range of Pictures to Share books is designed to be accessible and entertaining for anyone with mid to later stage dementia who may remember their childhood and need a prompt to help them talk about it. The range of beautiful and powerful pictures and short texts combine to give a real feel of what it was like to be a child, and the things that were part of childhood from daisy chains to playground games. Images of school, coming back from a day at the seaside, catching tadpoles, playing cowboys, riding on the back of Mum's bike and even a first cigarette, all combine to take the reader back to days that may still be fresh in their minds. All the images are powerful and easy to understand, and prompt lots of memories and discussion between those with Alzheimer's or other dementia and their family, friends and carers. Even when people with dementia can no longer hold a conversation they will enjoy looking through the book and studying the pages. Arranged in a clear and easy to understand format, the book is recommended for those with dementia by the Reading Well, Books on Prescription scheme in England.

Childhood Days in Pictures Reviews

"Showing the books to my Dad when I visit him has made it so much easier for me and Dad. They help to communicate with him and calm him down if he is feeling frustrated. It is great to see him smile when he looks at the pictures. Thank you very much for these books, it is amazing how such a small thing like a book can make a lot of difference."
