The Carry On Reading Series

The focus of these books is on stories that are interesting, enjoyable and accessible for individuals with memory deficits. An important feature of the books is the size and type of font, and the layout of the material, which is developed and tested in individual or group settings. The end result is an activity where participants enjoy the experience of reading interesting books and sharing memories related to the content. You will be amazed at the discussion and the reminiscing that is generated.

NOTE: Several of our titles now have paperback and laminated versions available! During the purchase process, if the book is available in both formats, you will be asked to select the Book Type prior to adding to your cart.
