Cooper and Me and the Winter Adventure: Book Review & Giveaway

The 4-Crow's love books. I think if you have followed me long enough you already know that though. when given the opportunity to review a children's book, I jumped at it. Kaybrie will be five next month and is in Pre-K, she is starting to recognize sight words. Sight words is a whole new way of reading for me. I was a phonics girl. Now don't get me wrong, I like the combination of both. Cooper & Me and the Winter Adventure uses phonics!!! I love this book, it rhymes, teaches life lessons, and did I mention the illustrations are just beautiful.

Cooper is just so "DOG"goned cute!

The mission, vision and journey behind the Cooper and Me books is a story in itself. "In 2010, 11-year-old Alexa Peters, along with her mother Monique Peters, found a meaningful way to turn her passion and love for writing and drawing into an opportunity to “give back” to other kids The mission is to both entertain young children and help them gain emotional resilience as they navigate the challenges of everyday living." Happy Hearts Fund and The Lustgarten Foundation and Pancreatic Cancer are the two charities that Alexa and Monique give back to through these books. $1 of every Winter Adventure book sold will go to advance research & treatment of pancreatic cancer, via the Lustgarten Foundation (

What a lovely book. Pity I am a little old for it-or am I? :)
So sorry I haven't visited for a while. In process of moving house so it's cuckoo here. Will be back in the mix in the next couple of weeks.

Sounds like a great book. I read to the kid every night for almost 11 years and then boom, he's done with me.

Any kids out there need read to? I miss it.
