You won’t find a simpler way to interact meaningfully and enjoyably with someone with memory impairment! Just sit down together, open this colorful and engaging book across both laps, and begin reading, reminiscing, and communing.

The second book in the Two-Lap Book™ series, Happy New Year to You! celebrates each month of the year with colorful illustrations and short, easy-to-read text. Individuals with memory impairment and their caregivers will enjoy the familiar and friendly images: rain showers in April, weddings in June, school days in September. Pictures and text together will spark boundless opportunities to discuss and remember happy times and comforting experiences.

Styled with the appeal and simplicity of a children’s book but created for adult audiences, this Two-Lap Book™ can serve multiple purposes: · Stimulate conversation and reminiscence

· Encourage physical closeness and interaction

· Provide a calming diversion from an upsetting episode

· Inspire intergenerational exchanges with children

· Increase social interaction between staff and residents

· Promote reading skills in residents who retain their literacy

Reading Happy New Year to You! is an instant activity—no planning or preparation required. Open it to a favorite illustration... read it from start to finish... or select just a page or two to spark an exchange. Tips on how to promote engagement with the book are provided, as well as song suggestions for each illustration! Here is a natural and unlimited opportunity to rebuild connections for the person with dementia, stroke, multiple sclerosis, and related disorders.

About the Author:

With a master's degree in Clinical Practices (psychology), Lydia Burdick's career has been in human resources. Since 1993, she has been a consultant at an international outplacement firm. Lydia wrote The Sunshine on My Face in the course of caring for her mother who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. "One of my greatest pleasures," she says, "was sitting together with my mother and hearing her read the words from this book when she had otherwise stopped speaking almost entirely."

Review:

"I used to buy children's books with big pictures, big words, about animals for my mother, who has advanced dementia. Now to be able to have a book with pictures and words with somebody her age sitting on a chair enjoying the sunset ― it's a really inspired idea." (Jill Eikenberry, a New York-based actress 2001-01-01)

"With its warm, friendly, and upbeat style, this is an appealing picture book to share with a person with Alzheimer’s or other memory impairment." (Family Caregiver Alliance Update 2001-01-01)

"A wonderful way to engage with a memory-impaired adult" (Peter Rabins, M.D., MPH, Professor of Psychiatry and Co-Author of The 36-Hour Day Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine 2001-01-01)

"Lydia Burdick's book series is fulfilling an unmet need for reading materials for older persons with memory problems. Our research indicates that these are the kinds of reading materials which these persons may prefer to read at some point in the course of their condition." (Barry Reisberg, M.D., Clinical Director Silberstein Aging and Dementia Research Center, New York University School of Medicine 2001-01-01)

"Read and share this amazing heart touching book ... it will make everyone happier, wise, and better equipped to communicate" (Mark Victor Hansen Co-Creater of #1 New York Times Bestselling series Chicken Soup for the Soul® and Co-Author of Cracking the Millionaire Code and The One MInute Millionaire 2001-01-01)

"With her unique books, Lydia Burdick brings families closer together--she helps bridge the chasm created by senile dementia." (David Shenk, Author of The Forgetting: Alzheimer's, Portrait of an Epidemic 2001-01-01)

"An enchanting way to instantly create closeness, spark recognition, and share moments of joy with a memory-challenged loved one." (Jacqueline Marcell, B.S., Host and author of Elder Rage "Coping with Caregiving" Internet Radio Program 2001-01-01)

"It was exciting to see the second Two-Lap Book. I shared this book with patients and caregivers at my nursing home and assisted living facility, and it was met with uniform excitement." (Bernard A. Roos, M.D., Professor, University of Miami School of Medicine Director, the Stein Gerontological Institute at the Miami Jewish Home and Hospital for the Aged 2001-01-01)
