Holiday Retirement Helps Nation's Grandparents Fight to Save the Bedtime Story

National story gathering campaign publishes children’s book, available this holiday season

LAKE OSWEGO, OR, December 04, 2015 — Every day, thousands of childhood bedtime stories are lost as another generation of

storytellers (and their families) do not take the time to capture them. In an effort to save these cherished bedtime tales,

Holiday Retirement, a manager of senior living communities nationwide, initiated a "story drive” earlier this year to begin

Bedtime Stories: Original Tales Shared from One Generation to the Next.

produce an amazing book for the generations to share.”

their loved ones. And with a resource found at the back of Bedtime Stories: Original Tales Shared from One Generation to

the Next, parents will have a tool to help their children connect with storytellers from different generations and write

their own bedtime story as a way of preserving a family’s legacy.

“Relationships among the generations are so important as we pass along experiences, stories, and wisdom from one to the

next,” said Gosselin. “Bedtimes stories are just one of many ways Holiday Retirement encourages intergenerational
