A Little, Aloud : An anthology of prose and poetry for reading aloud to someone you care for Paperback / softback

Edited by Angela Macmillan

Paperback / softback

Description

We are on the cusp of a reading revolution. Increasingly, research is uncovering an intimate connection between reading and wellbeing.

The seemingly simple act of being read to brings remarkable health and happiness benefits.

It stimulates thought and memory, encourages the sharing of ideas and feelings, hopes and fears.

It enriches our lives and minds. This unique book offers a selection of prose and poetry especially suitable for reading aloud - to your husband or wife, a sick parent or child, an elderly relative.

With short introductions and discussion topics for each piece there's something here for everyone - from Shakespeare and Black Beauty to Elizabeth Jennings and Bruce Chatwin. All royalties in full will go to The Reader Organisation, the leading UK charity for reading and health.
