We just love this new series of books, written specifically for older adults who are living with dementia.
This bundle is especially wonderful for those who are veterans. But it's great for any patriotic American, and a great gift for the 4th of July!
The books are heartfelt tributes to American Heroes from all five branches of the Armed Services. These large-format, full-color books put honor and validation in the hands of older adults and their caregivers to stimulate conversation and connection through nostalgic images, patriotic poetry, and verse.
This bundle includes three books:
- Sit with Me at Sundown: Patriotic Poetry for the Young at Heart
- Nostalgic Picture Book of Psalms for Veterans
- Nostalgic Picture Book for Patriotic Americans

Enhanced quality of life through compassionate design is at the heart of every book in the series.

Praise for Nana's books:
NANA’S BOOKS have been praised by Naomi Feil of Validation Therapy, Lori LaBey of ALZ SPEAKS and have found their place as favorite resources in validation, recreation, reminiscence, and life review therapies, as well as adult day, memory, hospice, palliative and pastoral care.
I love this book for Veterans, as it speaks to them in an emotional language that truly resonates. I brought this to a Veteran's home, and the first resident to pick it up would not put it down. One of his caregivers said she had never seen him so engaged! The imagery is designed to bring back memories of patriotic slogans, artwork and designs that were popular in wartime. For a respectful trip down memory lane that celebrates the Veteran's sacrifices, this book is wonderful. I'd like to see it in every Veteran's home and VFW Hall across the country! I can't wait to get the other Veteran's titles in this book series.
My wife ordered three of Nana’s Picture Books as gifts for a friend who is suffering from dementia. He is also a flag-waving veteran. When the books arrived, we could not put them down. Psalms for Veterans, Picture Book for Patriotic Americans, and Patriotic Poetry, warmed our hearts and reminded us how fortunate we are to live in America. The pictures and words are nostalgic and inspiring. If you have a friend or relative of any age, suffering or not, these books will become treasures. Five Stars Jimmy and Janet
A outstanding collection of artwork. Perfect for veterans and the patriotic.
