Cooper and Me and the Military: Book Review & Giveaway

I can only imagine, read, watch, listen and pray daily for our military troops and their families. I do not have a close family member currently deployed. My niece's fiance will soon be going to Afghanistan, and I have a cousin who will be going to England. I have had lots of family members who have been in active military duty and would do it again if asked. They have never regretted their decision to serve our country. You may even remember at Thanksgiving this past year when we had my friend/Kaybrie's ballet teacher and her girls over for Thanksgiving dinner. Her husband Charlie was due home anytime from Iraq, but kept getting delayed. I am proud to say that I have also taught my children to respect and pray for those who serve and protect us and those who stand by them daily, their families.

When asked to review the new Cooper and Me book, written for children by Monique and Alexa Peters, I was so excited. It was another opportunity for me to share with my children about the life of those in the Military. Here is an overview of the book.

"Meet Trooper, Cooper’s best friend, and learn how he was adopted by Gracie and Joe and their parents, who both serve in the military. Find out how this family stays close despite being separated.

A must-read during patriotic holidays and for anyone with friends and family in the military, this book helps children know, that even when loved ones aren’t with us, they still love us and think about us. This book, along with all the other books in the Cooper and Me series, includes these interactive features:
• A Special Memory Creation
• Life Lesson
• Connections
• Learning Together

In addition to a fun adventure, each Cooper and Me story teaches an important Life Lesson and features interactive materials at the back of the book to drive the message home.  Included are activities that help children name and process their own feelings about what they’ve read."

If I haven't said it before, I love these books. I love the use phonics, rhyme and the illustrations. Cooper is so adorable. My daughter loves him also, these books are a wonderful addition to our library.
