Book Reviews

Color Your Mind: A Coloring Book for Those with Alzheimer’s and the People Who Love Them is an innovative book filled with both information and inspiration. Authored by award-winning journalist, best-selling author, and Alzheimer’s advocate Maria Shriver, this book was developed with insights from caregivers, neurologists, psychologists, and, of course, people with Alzheimer’s. Color Your Mind is written as a resource for caregivers, family, and friends to help forge communication and connection with people with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.

The activities, images, and approach in Color Your Mind were developed and refined through visits to nursing homes and memory care facilities. These visits and interactions also informed the selection of cheerful, inspiring coloring images in Color Your Mind. Each coloring page is accompanied by relevant information and prompts to help people with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers to create, connect, and reflect. This book is unique in that it connects coloring with helpful information surrounding well-being, social connection, nutrition, exercise, moving the mind, and sleep–all valuable lessons for a fulfilling, balanced life.

Popsicle Goes To Church is story of an adorable five-year old whose faith, determination and love of her sick dog leads her into a bit of a pickle, but it works out in the end.
