Book Review and GIVEAWAY!!!! Cooper & Me and the Winter Adventure

We love reading books together all year long, but somehow for me, part of Christmas is the fun of snuggling together reading stories, it helps us to slow down and reconnect in the midst of the busyness of it all.

This year Little Bit and I enjoyed reading Cooper and Me and the Winter Adventure by Monique and Alexa Peters.

This is a cute rhyming story about 2 dogs, Cooper and Bella who get lost in the snow and their friend helps them find their way home. Little Bit enjoyed the pictures and the story kept her attention as well as most stories do, she's more of a "look at pictures" kind of reader right now.

The back of the book includes some learning questions  that are abit too much like the many reading comprehension quizzes I took in school for me to be a fan, but if someone is looking for a way to open discussion about the book they might be a helpful resource. Little Bit had more fun counting the pawprints that were used instead of bullet points on that page LOL.

I also like knowing that 
$1 of every Winter Adventure book sold will go to advance research & treatment of pancreatic cancer, via the Lustgarten Foundation. It's always nice to know that we can help others while purchasing quality items for our family.

For Little Bit, this was a fun book with pictures she liked. As she gets older, we'll be able to discuss the plot abit more and then it will also be a useful, non-scary way to talk about getting lost and how to be safe if you do.

And now the fun part, I get to give away a copy of this book to one of my readers!!!

I like the mission statement: "Our mission is to both entertain young children and help them gain emotional resilience as they navigate the challenges of everyday living." What a great and worthy goal! To often children are overlooked and seen as a burden. It's great to see products directed towards embracing who they are and building them up!
