Other Books Available in this young readers series

Brief Description: (from the website)
 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

Our Thoughts:

This is the 3rd Cooper and Me book that my family has reviewed.  They have been a hit with my 3 year old daughter each time.  My 9 year old is also interested in the stories. 

I love that the stories in this series are written by a teenager and that the family donates a portion of the proceeds to charity. 

Each book helps children process emotions about a particular subject.  This new one is no exception.  Cooper's best friend, Trooper, belongs to a family separated due to military service.  Not only does the book seek to portray how much people still love each other while far away; but it also offers practical solutions and ways to help during the difficult separations.  Another bonus is a fill-in-the-blank type letter for your child to send to an active duty soldier.

I love America.  I love our soldiers, including several in my own family.  And I love this book for touching on a such an important subject.  I hope it encourages readers to encourage our military by sending letters overseas.
