Cooper and Me and the Military Review and Give Away!

 I have another review and give away coming at you right now.  This book is a sweet book that your kids will want to read over and over again.  It is colorful and adorable. 

this is not the final cover

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.
This book is a great way to broach the subject of our military forces serving our country and some of the issues their families have to face.  Even if you don't have anyone in your life in this situation you can use it to foster understanding and compassion in your children for others that are in this situation.  
Here are some websites to check out:
 I also have a copy of this book to give away to a lucky reader.  To enter, tell me of a friend or family member that has served in the military.  Don't know anyone in the military?  That's okay.  Tell me your favorite patriotic hymn instead.  ;-)  I will draw the winner on Friday the 17th of February.

It looks like it would be a good book for my youngest one. Let's see- currently serving in the Army is our nephew Jake, over in Afghanistan. Niece Andrea was just released from the Army on a medical discharge. And of course, my hubby was in the Air Force!
