"Cooper & Me and the Military" Review & Giveaway
The name Cooper & Me has become familiar in the world of children's books, recognized for its colorful illustrations and irresistible dog characters. Mother-daughter writing team Monique & Alexa Peters have created a new book in the Cooper & Me series in honor of military families. They share the story of siblings Joe and Gracie, whose mom and dad are both deployed through the military in defense of our country. A new dog friend is also introduced -- Trooper. He belongs to Joe and Gracie. The story is told through rhyme in a kid-friendly, heartwarming way. I've never seen a book quite like this before and I think it's a wonderful idea to both explain to children what it means to be in the military and to honor those serving our country. It would make an excellent gift for the children of military families in your life.
As usual with the Cooper and Me series, there are interactive activities in the book, including a special memory creation (writing a letter to someone in the military), a song, and a life lesson that children will remember.
