5.0 out of 5 stars Safety and Teamwork are the name of the game!, July 23, 2003
This review is from: Officer Buckle & Gloria (Caldecott Medal Book) (Hardcover)
Officer Buckle knows more about safety than anyone else. He gives talks about his tips to remain safe. Unfortunately his talks fall on deaf ears. Safety is just not interesting.
But then the force acquires a new police dog named Gloria. Gloria accompanies Officer Buckle to a talk. While Officer Buckle recites his list of safety tips, Gloria performs tricks to illustrate them. But Officer Buckle does not know Gloria is doing anything.
Suddenly the safety talks are a hit and Officer Buckle and Gloria are appearing everywhere. Then Officer Buckle sees himself on the news. He also sees what Gloria has been doing. He is not happy.
But by the end of the book, Officer Buckle and Gloria have learned their lessons and that teamwork is key to the success of the safety program.
Boy did my daughter love this book when I read it to her last night. She loves dogs and Gloria's antics were pure entertainment. She caught on to the teamwork message as well as some of the safety tips (most of which are visible as notes in the illustrations). She also liked the pictures (no gorillas or hamsters making appearances) especially Gloria signing autographs while Officer Buckle buys some ice cream.
A fun book that teaches some good lessons in a way children will follow. Bravo! It deserved the award it won (and it deserves others as well).
