Dogs and Puppies, written by Matthew Schneider and Deborah Drapac, is one of a collection of eight interactive books designed specifically to enhance the quality of communication between caregivers and adults experiencing memory loss. Through its vivid photography and large-print text written in clear, concise, and easy-to-read sentences, these books have been developed to evoke memories, initiate conversation, and supply mental and physical stimulation. Each book is comprised of three unique sections:
• The Story - Designed to entertain, inform, inspire, and/or educate; evoke memories and encourage opportunities to reminisce; and foster an interest in reading.
• Conversation Starters - Feature a combination of close-ended (yes or no) and open-ended questions that directly correlate to individual sets of pages from the story; are designed to prompt a dialog from past experiences, events and/or relationships; and provide an opportunity to share special memories and unique experiences.
• Activities - Designed to provide additional mental and physical enrichment; are based on sensory stimulation, creative expression, and physical movement; and correspond to the overall theme of each book.
The interactive book, Dogs and Puppies, chronicles the antics and adventures of man's best friend. From playing catch in the park to rooting for scraps in the trash, each heartwarming tale accompanied by an endearing photograph, recalls a treasured moment of dog ownership. This book includes heartwarming tales, innovative conversation starters, and practical activities.
