Cooper and Me and the Military – Book Review & Giveaway

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.

Alexa Peters (age 13) was inspired to write a story about family friends who were separated by deployment.  She wanted to write this book to help kids process their feelings about loved ones being away from home and honor those in service.



Cooper and Me and the Military is an awesome book for kids with family or friends in the military. It is hard for little kids to understand when a family member or close friend of the family leaves for a deployment.

Cooper and Me and the Military is a cute little story about 2 kids whose parents, both parents, are serving overseas in the military. I won’t give all the story away, but the 2 kids end up writing letters and sending a package to their parents. Then it shows the parents opening the package.

The pictures in the book are bright and colorful. The kind of pictures little kids love. There are 3 pages in the back of the book with things to do and talk about with the kids who have loved ones away serving in the military.

Cooper and Me and the Military is a great way to keep the lines of communications open with little kids and help them adjust to loved ones being gone. I’m going to send my copy of Cooper and Me and the Military to 2 little boys I know whose father is on a deployment right now. They will love it!
