"I don’t talk about our military roots very often, but we are a military family. My husband has been active-duty Air Force for 18 years. During that time, we have been fortunate as a family to only have one brief ten week deployment. My father-in-law served during Vietnam, and my Grandfather-In-Law served during World War 2 in Japan. We are always ready and willing for a deployment if it should come. I love finding books that teach my children about the military and the Air Force because is so much a part of their heritage. I’ve blogged about the Cooper and Me books in the past, so when a chance came up to review this book about Cooper and Me and the Military I was probably first in line!
The military family is unusual because both parents are active duty, and both parents are deployed at the same time. The book shows different ways that the family stays in touch and offers several other activities in the back of the book. One of the best things about Cooper and Me books is that they are presented from the dog’s point of view. I love that. Mostly because my little guys all love that! We have already read this book a couple times, and I suspect we will be reading it over and over in the coming years.
My Bottom Line: I would recommend this book to anyone with family in the military and anyone looking to teach their children about life in the military and being supportive of our troops. The illustrations are great, the material is great, and the dogs are adorable… Definitely a keeper!"
Cooper and Me offers a perfect opportunity to reinforce that special bond between adult and child through direct communication about the story and the sharing of life experiences.
