Sensory Stories contain just a few lines of text, and are brought to life through a selection of meaningful sensory experiences. They have been found to be highly effective in helping care for people with dementia, and can enable them to engage with their memories, life history and more, in a way that would otherwise not be possible. Despite these benefits, there is very little guidance on how to incorporate this approach in everyday care. This book looks at how sensory engagement can help someone with dementia feel safe and secure, minimise their anxieties, support their cognitive abilities, as well as other benefits. Full of practical advice, this book provides everything you need to put Sensory Stories into practice. Written at a level suitable for both family members and practitioners, this innovative book will be invaluable for anyone supporting a person with dementia.

This is the first book-length account of Joseph Conrad's reception in Germany, a virtually unresearched area of Conrad studies. It demonstrates that Conrad was read and used by his German readers as a cosmopolitan literary and moral voice against the prevailing nationalism of Germany in the 'dark times' of the 1930s and 1940s, when their own voices were being silenced. Challenging the longstanding assumption that Germany remained largely indifferent to his works, this book demonstrates that, particularly after the translation of the complete fiction commencing in the 1920s, Conrad's works achieved near cult status in Germany. On the basis of diaries and letters, contemporary reviews and essays, unpublished archival material as well as novels and films, the author illuminates the range and importance of Conrad's presence as a powerful liberating imagination within twentieth-century German culture. Championed by Thomas Mann, lauded by Hermann Hesse, and decried as 'Conrad the Jew' by the Nazis, Conrad has remained an influential presence in post-war German culture. The study offers a completely fresh perspective on Conrad's works and speaks eloquently for the importance of recognizing the way trans-national literary cultural relations have helped to shape European cultural history.

Family storytelling offers many of the same advantages as book reading - and some new ones - for children's language and emotional development, coping skills, and sense of belonging. Tell Me a Story: Sharing Stories to Enrich Your Child's World shows parents how telling and sharing stories about family experiences can help children grow into healthy, happy adolescents and adults. Dr. Elaine Reese outlines the techniques that work best with children of all ages, from toddlers to teens, including children with learning delays and difficult temperaments. She also tackles challenging issues such as whether children profit at all from the stories that they experience through TV, movies, and video games; how storytelling differs from daughters to sons; and the best ways to continue to share family stories with children after a separation or divorce. Finally, Reese shares tips specially designed for storytelling with grandchildren, demonstrating how parents can and should continue to nurture family storytelling long after their children are grown, and especially once their children become parents themselves. Providing guidance on a positive, portable, and free way to enrich children's development, Tell Me a Story deserves a place in every parent's library.

Michael and Darla have been friends since childhood and each has an extraordinary gift: they are able to use their souls to enter the sleeping minds of others and join in, or alter, their dreams. However, neither initially reveals their dream-sharing power to the other. As Michael and Darla enter the same elite boarding school they are still unaware that each has this power, although they frequently dream-share with each other. Their close relationship is encouraged by their powerful and wealthy families. Together with their friends Earl and Lori, the students join the Outdoor Club, which takes them on a trip to Tibet. There, deep in a frozen cave on the side of Mt. Everest, Michael discovers ancient scrolls that seem to tell of himself and Darla. But as Michael struggles to fully decipher the text, Darla grows weaker, finding herself unable to resist the allure of the dream world. Michael must decode the prophecy and keep Darla from becoming lost in a dream state. Will he be able to save her before the nightmares keep her soul forever?

Story Sharers

Have you ever woke from a dream and think,"That would be a great movie" and want to continue the story in your head? This is your creativity begging to be let free. There is nothing like letting your imagination free and being creative.

Have you ever woke from a dream and think,"That would be a great movie" and want to continue the story in your head? This is your creativity begging to be let free. There is nothing like letting your imagination free and being creative. School curriculum can stifle a child's creative writing and thinking. Kids are overly concerned and anxious about handwriting, spelling, punctuation, word counts, and right answers. This is not how you create. Creativity flows best with freedom and practice. Boundless Beginnings starts you off with a paragraph or two. The first person writes their name in the left column and then continues the story in their space. When you run out of space you pass it on to the next person that picks it up from there and so on. When it's time to end the story you can have a story ending party and sit around to finish it off together as a group. Visit for more: Story Starters, Story Sharers, Bedtime Story workbooks.
