Cooper and Me

 Cooper and Me is a cute little book written by a mother-daughter team. An artist from a very young age, Alexa Peters, wanted to give back to others through her illustrations. The idea for this book was found in her sketchbooks.

The theme of the book is separation anxiety. The little girl in the story is getting ready for her first day of school. She is worried about what school will be like and about being away from her mother and dog, Cooper. Her mother finds a solution - a miniature Cooper doll that the little girl can take to school. She finds comfort in the "mini Cooper" (*grin*) and actually enjoys her time at school.

The book is the first in a series of books that deal with real life. There are several interactive features at the end of the book that allow families to discuss feelings and issues related to the theme.

On the website, a kids' page has coloring pages and games. Reading guides are also available for parents and teachers.
