Officer Buckle and Gloria

Officer Buckle and Gloria by Peggy Rathmann

Safety officer Buckle has a tough time getting his school aged audience to listen to his safety speeches. Then one day doggie Gloria is assigned to him and together they give the presentation. Unbeknown to him Gloria is acting out the horrible things that can happen to you when you don’t follow safety rules. The audience loves the show and it very impressed. Then one day he sees his speech on the news and realizes that everyone has been applauding for Gloria not him. He is dejected and sends her out alone to the next school. No one is impressed. Officer Buckle realizes that working as a team gets their safety message across. What a cute little book. Lovely drawings and how can you not love a dog story? Perfect for young, single digit children. -Flourish
