Anne Geddes’ books for reading aloud

Little BlessingsAnne Geddes is widely known as a photographer who specializes in images of babies in imaginative settings. As Anne’s website notes, her “…imagery singularly captures the beauty, purity and vulnerability of children embodying her deeply held belief that each and every child must be protected, nurtured and loved.”

Some of Anne’s books are excellent candidates for reading aloud with dementia patients. Little Blessings, for example, combines Anne’s photography with poetry and text that celebrate the blessings we receive with children.

My favorite image in Little Blessings shows sleeping twins with angel wings and the wish “May your day be filled with blessings, like the sun that lights the sky, and may you have the courage to spread your wings and fly.”

I brought a copy of Little Blessings with me when I visited Mom yesterday. She thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommended!
