Cooper’s Story is an uplifting Puppy Tale from the #1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the A Dog’s Purpose series, W. Bruce Cameron. When Cooper — a Malamute-Great Dane puppy — is taken to an adoption fair, he finds the perfect forever home with a boy named Burke. Soon Cooper discovers his very important purpose: to help Burke by pulling his wheelchair, fetching things for him, and assisting him in and out of his chair.
“Books about various topics really help elementary and middle school age children learn to love to read. Many children love animals, puppies in particular, so this book will motivate them to read.”
“I like that Cooper’s story is told from the point of view of Cooper, a Malamute-Great Dane puppy. He is taken to an adoption fair and is adopted by a child that uses a wheelchair as his emotional support dog. The reader learns about the life of a child in a wheelchair through Cooper’s eye. There are pre-reading and post-reading questions at the end of the book to help parents or teachers to discuss the book with their children or students.”
“I like that the book has those pre and post reading questions to help the grownups discuss the book with their children. I, of course, like that there is a lead character that has a disability, using a wheelchair. There is also information about emotional support dogs, which is educational.”
“This is a fun and educational book for readers discovering the joy of chapter books.”
“This will definitely foster the love of reading in elementary school age children.”
