|Officer Buckle and Gloria
1996 Caldecott Award
Police Officer Buckle's job is to teach school children the importance of safety. He just doesn't seem to have the knack for keeping the children's attention until he is partnered with Gloria, a police canine, who, with much enthusiasm captures the attention of the children and the team becomes a hit with the children. Officer Buckle doesn't want to continue his safety talks because it is apparent that Gloria is stealing the show !
When disaster strikes, Officer Buckle finds out the importance of sticking with your buddy !
Recommend for every school library.
