Officer Buckle and Gloria by Peggy Rathmann is a most amusing story about a policeman and his dog. Officer Buckle has a very important duty as part of his police work. He is a safety officer, and has taken his safety tips presentation to some schools in the area. However, the student audiences are not very excited about learning these tips. In fact, they become so bored, they most often fall asleep! Officer Buckle is about to give up, when he is introduced to Gloria, his new canine partner. He takes Gloria along to his next presentation, after making sure that she will sit and behave during his speech, and the results are amazing. Officer Buckle doesn’t understand why his listeners have become so enthusiastic, until one day he sees himself and Gloria on a TV show. This is a great read aloud book for pre-k and early grade level children. The illustrations are hilarious, and the premise of the story is as catchy as the characters are charming.
