Cooper and Me and the Winter Adventure Book Review

A couple of months ago, I had the honor of reviewing Cooper and Me, a sweet book about a dog named "Cooper" written by Monique & Alexa Peters (read my review here). My son, who is  pre-school age, adored the book. So, when I was asked recently if I would like to review another Cooper and Me book, I naturally said "YES"!

Cooper and Me and the Winter Adventure is a story about 2 dogs, Cooper and Bella, who can't wait to go sledding, but they wander a bit too far away from home and lose their way in a snow storm. Rather than trying to find their own way home, they do the right thing and stay put and finally bark and howl until their friend Trooper answers their barks and leads them safely home. 

Just like the book Cooper and Me, the Winter Adventure book includes the following features:

A Special Memory Creation
Life Lesson
Learning Together

Personally, this is my favorite of the two Cooper and Me books I have reviewed. This book was illustrated by Alexa Peters & Melissa Peterson and I think they did a fantastic job! 

Also available is Cooper's Winter Adventure CD on iTunes ($3.99) and includes:

Song List:
• Cooper and Me
• Off We Go Sledding
• Cooper's Town
• Holiday Lullaby
• Winter Adventure Narration

If you are looking for a gift for pre-school to 2nd grade, I recommend visiting to see what products they have to offer. If you are a homeschooler or a teacher, the stories of Cooper and Me can be used to teach rhyming and phonics, they are perfect for older readers to read aloud to younger readers, and the lessons that they teach are very valuable. I can't wait for the next book, Cooper and Me and The Military, coming January 2012!

It is important to note that $1 of every Winter Adventure book sold at events and on their website through 2/2012 will go to advance research and treatment of pancreatic cancer, via the Lustgarten Foundation ( This isn't just a random decision made by author Monique Peters. Pancreatic cancer has touched her life personally with the passing of her grandfather, Marc Lustgarten. It is their hope that this contribution will not only help fund the efforts of finding a cure, but also to create awareness for the Lustgarten Foundation and all that they do.
