Classic books came to life at care home on World Book Day

Solihull Editorial 10th Mar, 2021   0

RESIDENTS and staff at a Yardley care home brought their favourite books to life on World Book Day (March 4).

Staff at Heartlands Care and Nursing Home dressed up as characters from classic and much-loved books and reading extracts and poems too.

Residents could also chose a book to read from a trolley and spent the day revisiting old favourites from their childhood, as well as exploring some new titles including Alice in Wonderland and The Cat in the Hat.

Tracy Davies, Wellbeing Coordinator, said: “We had a great day reading out stories and poems.

“The residents loved seeing us all dressed up and had a fantastic time reminiscing about books they’d read and enjoyed as children.

“It was wonderful to see some of the residents who live with dementia joining in with the poems and stories from their childhood, it obviously sparked some lovely memories for people.”
