The healing powers of reading out loud

Recently my husband was hospitalized for 3 days. I decided he needed a distraction to take his mind off of his pain, so I read to him. I can’t say that it cured him, but it did help to relax him. I chose to read the book Living a Country Year by Jerry Apps because of its nostalgic, folksy, calm tone. If you know someone having a difficult time, perhaps you will want to try reading to the person. Or, if you don’t feel comfortable with reading out loud, you can try one of the Library’s many audio-books. Help make someone feel better with reading out loud.
