Review ~ Cooper & Me & the Military

Cooper and Me and the Military 




Overview: 

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.

What Others Are Saying

The language and lessons of Cooper and Me and the Military are simple enough for young children to understand and open up a forum for discussion.  This would be a great book to help a child whose parent is currently deployed or help a child relate to a friend whose parent is currently serving away from home.  It's a welcome addition to our library.

My Review:
I read this book with my 3 year old daughter.  When I was finished she grabbed it from me and told me she was going to read it again!  She really enjoyed the pictures of Cooper and Trooper.  She was even able to answer over half of the questions at the end of the book!  This is the second Cooper and Me book I have been privileged to review and once again it is a hit in my home.  The pictures are not what I would call "professional" or smooth looking, but I don't think it detracts from a child's enjoyment of the story.  Another wonderful book that children everywhere will love.
