Fun and Games, 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, Fun and Games, awakens fond memories of popular sports and leisure activities with vintage, sepia-tone photographs and personal recollections. From bowling to badminton, each page reflects on a childhood memory, bringing the reader back to a simpler, carefree time. This book includes reminiscent memories, innovative conversation starters, and practical activities.
