Cooper and Me and the Winter Adventure by Monique and Alexa Peters Book Review and Giveaway!!

Cooper and Me and the Winter Adventure by Monique and Alexa Peters is a story about Cooper the dog and his friend Bella who get lost in the snow.  Told in rhyme, this story follows Cooper and Bella through the winter wonderland and down the hill on a sled.  Suddenly a blizzard makes it hard to see and the dogs are lost.  They decide to bark and hear barks answering back.  They make their way back to town and are grateful to their friend Trooper for bringing them home with his bark.

This is a very cute children's book with a very good lesson about being prepared and safe in case you get lost.  In fact, there is a life lesson section with connection questions about the story in the back.  There is also a wonderful question and answer section for learning together.  I think it is smart to teach kids important lessons and give messages through story.  This book is well written and the illustrations are adorable.

'As a reading specialist I see a variety of important avenues to take these wonderful stories of Cooper and Me. I would use these delightful stories in kindergarten, in grade one and in grade two for "read-to" activities. They lend themselves to many feelings and situations that children at that age experience. I would also use the rhyming in each book to teach phonics. The colorful words and pictures will stimulate the children's desire to read.'
