**Tina is the winner!**
Cooper and Me and the Winter Adventure! is one in a series of books written by Alexa Peters and Melissa Peterson. They are a mother and daughter who create together. Mom writes and daughter illustrates! It's a wonderful story of two dogs, Cooper and Bella, who are very excited about winter and snow but they are not quite prepared for what will happen that day! Not only is it an engaging story for the whole family with colorful pictures and fun rhymes...
So they got out their sled,
prepared for the chill,
and headed way out
to the town's biggest hill.
it also has a very important message. Cooper and Bella spend the day happily sledding, building snowmen and playing. But what happens when they get lost in the snow? Through this book you can gently explain to your child what to do if they ever get lost and what can be done to minimize the risk of such an event. There is also an Information About ME! page where you can write down your child's name, address and emergency contacts. What a perfect opportunity to teach/review your child's full name, parent's full names, phone number and address!:) For further discussion, there are two pages of questions that include comprehension as well as feelings. A few examples are: 1) What happens with the weather when they begin sledding on the big hill? 2) How do you think they (Cooper and Bella) feel when they don't know where they are? This special section is called Learning Together. It adds so much to the whole reading experience and I wish more books had this feature.

As a reading specialist I see a variety of important avenues to take these wonderful stories of Cooper and Me. I would use these delightful stories in kindergarten, in grade one and in grade two for "read-to" activities. They lend themselves to many feelings and situations that children at that age experience. I would also use the rhyming in each book to teach phonics. The colorful words and pictures will stimulate the children's desire to read.'
