Cooper and Me
by Monique & Alexa Peters
ISBN 987-0-9829418-0-5
Hardback, 31 pages
Retail Price: $12.99

Cooper and Me is such a neat book for younger children that are getting ready to start school or might be going through some changes in their life.  It's geared toward pre-school to kindergarten age children and was written by and illustrated by Alexa Peters with help from her mom Monique.  The idea for the book was inspired by Alexa's own experiences on her first day of school.  Alexa is a talented illustrator and writer and wanted to find a meaningful way to give back and help others through her art.

Cooper and Me tells the familiar story of a nervous child preparing to start school and not wanting to leave her best friend, her dog Cooper.  Her mom comes up with a way to help her cope with her first day of school by taking a small, stuffed animal version of Cooper to school with her.  The book talks about overcoming separation anxiety and trying new things.  These are all basic emotions people experience throughout their lives but this time , written by a child, for children.

Part of the proceeds from this book are donated to Happy Hearts Fund which is run and founded by Petra Nemcova, the supermodel who was directly affected by the tsunami in Thailand.  Happy Hearts helps to improve children's lives after a natural disaster.

Cooper and Me will be released in stores on October 14th, 2011.  Cooper and Me has a fun interactive website that your children will love, parent's and teacher's will love the reading guides and printables.

Now for the fun part.  Not only was I given a copy to review but I'm allowed to give ONE copy away to one of my readers!  Mandatory to enter go to Cooper and Me and tell me which book you think your child would like.
