Like out other section Tales Of Gold, we are collecting stories told by seniors but these aren’t their stories but stories from children’s books! Yes, with the necessary lockdown of many communities and now the general public, it seemed important to us to not only get residents at senior communities to stay connected with their community but also to provide a wonderful outlet for them and the many children stuck at home.

Below is a series of videos done by our friends at Cypress Village! Check it out!

Emily Patel, Outreach Admission Manager of Cypress Village, shared with us a video of her husband reading Stars Wars: A New Hope

We took the resident recordings from Cypress Village and did some editing to show the book they were reading. Enjoy!

A story from Adam’s mom!

Editor and writer, Adam Chatani, helped his mom Sandi film and edit her reading a book for her class. She thankfully allowed us to share this and hope you enjoy it!
