Story time fun for care home residents to mark Book Lovers' Day
Bookshelves are bulging at Rose Lodge care home in Wisbech where book worm residents were keen to get involved in Book Lovers’ Day.
Rose Lodge celebrated the day where staff were able to dress up as their favourite character from a book.
Activities co-ordinator Jane Ritchie dressed as a bear and read to residents a story called The Lost Bear. Residents thoroughly enjoyed listening to the story and were very involved discussing the book
afterwards with tea and cake. Residents commented 'no one is ever too old for a story'.”
Jane said: “Our residents all love to read and to discuss their favourite books so Book Lovers’ Day is a fantastic opportunity for us all to spend the day with our noses in our favourite books.
had a great debate about reading from print or electronically from a tablet and there were strong arguments from both camps.”
Meg Jones, the home's general manager , said: “It has been a brilliant day and we have all enjoyed swapping our must-reads. Our residents love getting lost in a good book so they very much enjoyed reading excerpts from their favourite novels and discussing why they love them and what makes a good book. There are so many wonderful books to discover, everyone enjoyed finding out about new titles to put on their reading lists.”
