An Ocean of Orange: Picture Book for Dementia Patients, Seniors & Others (Level 2 Book). This is one of a series of picture books for dementia patients (or those with Alzheimer's), adults and seniors that have trouble reading. If your loved one is overwhelmed by 'normal' books but spry enough to feel offended with books labeled as dementia books or by being given a children's book, this is your answer. This book helps those who have a hard time reading in several ways:
Each book in this series is themed around one color. An Ocean of Orange has photos featuring beautiful orange elements from around the globe. The reader will find many delights: From a bright orange sunset behind a pyramid in Mexico to the soft orange fur of a Sumatran tiger; from the delicate orange petals of the Marigold flower to an orange sailed wooden boat making for port in Hong Kong. Those with dementia, Alzheimer's or senior reading struggles can find joy in 'reading' a book that does not need for them to follow a story.
*The book is formatted to look like a 'real' book. It is designed for adults, without any child-like wording or features. This allows your loved one to feel proud to own it as part of their book collection.
* Neither the title nor any text on or in the book states that the book is for dementia or any type of memory/cognitive problems. It is truly concealed so that the reader is not insulted.
* This is a nice, good-sized 8.5 x 8.5 square book with 102 pages that is large enough a person to really be able to take in the photos, without it feeling 'huge'. The soft cover makes it easy to hold. This is not a heavy hard-cover, nor it is a 'board book' that seniors can find condescending.
* Each photo (and short text) is only located on the right-side pages of this book. The reader can focus on one image at a time without distraction.
*The short picture descriptions are in large 16 px text. There are 1 to 3 short sentences per picture. Within each photo description, the word 'orange' appears 1 time, to keep the reader on track.
Please note: This is a Level 2 book, which primarily focuses on being a book of photos, along with short accompanying text. If you are looking for purely a picture book without any text at all, please look to the Level 1 books; for 'easy-read' short stories, please look to Level 3 books.
