Great stories, tiny print

Same review as for "You Make My Heart Sing": I had purchased one of these booklets a while back, enjoyed it, and passed it on to the Council on Aging to sell. Then I realized that these essays are PERFECT for "story time" with some of the elderly folks I know at a local senior living center where a 96-year-old former neighbor abides, so I bought it again.

Each "story" is just the right length, and fully self-enclosed, so even those with limited attention spans can follow the thought and feel satisfied at the end. Each story has just the right amount of nostalgia, whimsy, and sweetness to spark pleasant memories for those who still have them, pleasant feelings for all. And each story offers visualizations that serve as reminders of past happiness that can be shared in conversation, so important to this age group. It has been a joy reading these stories aloud to people so delighted for a pleasant break in their long, quiet days.
My only issue with these booklets is that the print is so small, it would be impossible for most of them to read (and not all that easy for me at 67). Of course the small print makes the booklet size very manageable.
I look forward every month to Elizabeth's opening in the Our State magazine, and I look forward to each of the new-to-me stories from past editions as I share them with friends.
