I was thrilled to have the opportunity to review the next book in the Cooper and Me series, Cooper and Me and the Winter Adventure by Monique and Alexa Peters. Cooper is a fun loving black Labrador whose adventures help children navigate challenges and emotions of real life everyday happenings. More than just a great children's book, the Cooper and Me series of books provides teaching opportunities and conversations for adults to have with their children.
Book description: Cooper and Bella can't wait to go sledding, but what happens when they wander a little too far from home and a snowstorm makes it difficult to find their way back?
Also included with the book are: A Special Memory Creation page, Life Lessons paragraph on what to do if you get lost, Connections taking about emotions, and Learning Together questions and answers.
Other Books in the Cooper and Me series include: Cooper and Me, Cooper and Me and the First Halloween, and Cooper and Me and the Military. You can purchase any of the books for $12.99 by clicking here.

We really enjoyed reading Cooper and Me and the Winter Adventure. The children (6,4,2) love animal stories and really liked the rhyming story and the delightful illustrations. My children especially love stories about winter and snow (probably because we don't see very much of it.) The book is hard cover with a very strong binding which means it will hold up for many, many readings. In addition to the sweet story, I thought the Learning Together questions and answers in the back of the book were a great compliment to the story and helpful when teaching children how to avoid being in the situation and what they should do if they are. A great children's story doesn't just entertain, but also educates in a fun way and Cooper and Me and the Winter Adventure does both of those things.
