Book Review - Cooper and Me and the Military

About the Book
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.


My Take on the Book
This was a great addition to the Cooper and Me series that will open any family to having meaningful discussions about either a parent or someone that a child knows who is in the military. The book does a good job at expressing and explaining some of the important things that children need to understand regarding this type of deployment and the feelings and emotions that surround this. Seeing that our kids have a close family friend who is currently overseas, this was a great addition to our library and it provided us with some great conversation starters as well! This is a must have book for any family!
