“Cooper and Me and the Military” book review & giveaway

“Cooper and Me and the Military” by Alexa Peters and Monique Peters
“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. “

My Thoughts-
We LOVE the Cooper and Me books in our house so we were excited to have the chance to review “Cooper and Me and the Military”. Cooper meets his new friend Trooper. trooper use to be a dog with the military but got hurt. Two people brought him home to their kids to look after them while they are gone. They missed their parents a lot and wrote them some letters, drew some photos and even sent a stuffed dog that looked just like Trooper so they wouldn’t feel lonely either.
This is a very sweet story which made me cry. Lee didn’t understand why I was sad, she said, “the kids have a nice doggie and they sent one to their mommy & daddy, aren’t they happy?”. I explained to her that they would still miss each other and that we should be thankful that there are people out there willing to keep us safe like these parents were.
At the end of the book there is a form that you can fill out to send a thank you to a service man or women. Lee wants to do this and I can’t wait to sit down with her and write it with her. There is also a “Learning together” section where we can sit down and talk about the book and what we learned form it.
Again we LOVE Cooper and Me and this one is now added to our collection of books we love.
