    This book could be used in a kindergarten, first, or second grade classroom to teach students about safety lessons and the importance of safety. This book would be a good model text to show students how to make a good public speech and how to keep the audience engaged. Students can read this book as a class to discuss friendship and how words can sometimes be hurtful. The students will also so why rules are important in order to stay safe.

    You could use this book as an interactive read aloud for a kindergarten class to teach them about friendship, the buddy system or some key vocabulary words that appear in the book. You could use it to teach the class about questions, merely by asking them questions throughout the text as examples of the question.

    Book Review Template:This book is called "Officer Buckle and Gloria" by Peggy Rathman. This book is about a police officer who goes to local schools and gives these super boring safety tip lectures. One day, the police station gets a new police dog and officer Buckle decided to bring her with him to give his lectures. While he is giving the lectures, the students suddenly are so interested and loving every minutes of it. He becomes famous and goes to schools all over! One night while he is watching himself on the news, he realizes why everyone suddenly started to love his shows. Gloria, the dog, was preforming tricks and acting out the tips that he would be talking about. Officer Buckle is very mad and then refuses to do any more lessons. Will officer Buckle and Gloria make amends and be able to preform together again? My favorite part of this book is when Gloria first starts acting out his safety tips and Officer Buckle thinks he is suddenly really getting through to the children. If you like a funny book about unexpected friendship, I think you'll love this book! Don't forget to brush up on your safety tips.

    I believe this book would be awesome to read to students who are in grade levels 1 and 2. During this period, children might often test the rules and are learning about safety. I think this would be a read- aloud book to incorporate with safety lessons.

    This is the best book ever, we loved Gloria!!

    This was a super cute story about safety and team work. I love all the detail in the background of the pictures. My favorite part was the fact that part of what was going on in the story is solely in the pictures and if you just read the text you don't know what's going on. It would be a really fun lesson to do on inference, especially with little students.

    Another Caldecott award winning picture book entails the journey of a police officer and his best friend Gloria. This picture book has excellent illustrations that are very detailed. The meaning behind this story is to realize how important it is to always have a buddy, and how team work is very crucial. I would read this book to a group of kindergarten to 3rd grader because I feel as though they would understand that meaning of team work. Even at the age of five or six, understanding the meaning of team work is very important.

    This is a cute story about how friendship brings out the best in people. Also can touch on rules and safety in the classroom if you wanted it too. I remember this book from when I was little.

    This is cute story of a local police officer who gives speeches at schools in his community. He is not received very well at first until he is joined by his very animated police dog, Gloria. Once Gloria and Officer Buckle team up the students pay close attention to rules and words spreads of their great presentation. At one point Officer Buckle realizes that it is Gloria's antics that the children are focusing on. He feel poorly and quits giving his safety speeches. The school community falls into chaos. Gloria tries to give the safety speech without Officer Buckle. It becomes clear the magic of the safety speeches is in the partnership between the two. A heart-warming story

    Priceless. Funny and wise,both, and I sure do wish I'd read it with my sons when they were younger. As it won the C. the year my youngest was born, I'll be saving it in case he ever gives me grandkids.

    Officer Buckle knows more about safety than anyone else in Napville, but his dull presentations put his audiences to sleep. Enter Gloria, Napville's new police dog. Gloria knows just how to liven up the safety speeches--as long as Officer Buckle's back is turned! (Goodreads Summary) Officer Buckle & Gloria by Peggy Rathmann is a great picturebook that shows how illustrations and text combine to produce more than either could seperately: the same lesson learned by Officer Buckle & Gloria! The watercolor illustrations reveal things never written in the text and are a highlight of this book. The importance of friendship and working together is conveyed effectively.Gloria the police dog is a pantomime artist of great talent, & her antics transform Officer Buckle's dull safety lecture into the must-see program of the year. The illustrations are wildly slapstick & will have children laughing, and wishing Gloria could come to their school. The letters to Officer Buckle, with drawings, are great & children will enjoy the endpapers too. There are many classroom possibilities to extend the story with related activities.For readers grades 1 - 3, for sharing with grades k - 3, and good for safety & friendship themes.

    In Officer Buckle & Gloria the reader sees as an officer goes around to schools with his dog doing safety speeches. Gloria the dog ends up doing extremely hysterical things behind officer Buckle's back during the speeches. At first when he finally finds out he is sad she stole his spotlight, but in the end he realizes that they are a great team and really love each other. The illustrator made sure to include clear lines and colorful pictures. Officer Buckle & Gloria is a Caldecott Medal winner. This book shows readers that you can be a great team with someone and work together.

    This story is great for Early Childhood Education! This book is about an officer who gets ignored by the children while he is reciting the safety rules. When the officer finds a dog named, Gloria, things start changing. Even though the book is on the comical side, you also learn valuable rules and real life safety rules. This book is brilliant with colorful illustrations!

    I honestly thought this was a very cute book. The pictures are really wonderful, and detailed. It taught a valuable lesson about friendship and that it's important to keep your buddy around.

    This is such a great picture book in that the illustrations really capture the attention of the reader beyond what the text could do alone. Even as an adult, I found myself waiting to see what would happen next and excited to see Gloria. This would be the perfect book to share to teach students about friendship, teamwork, and safety. This is one that I'd like to have in my classroom library.

    This is a really cute book to read to children of all ages. The illustrations fit in perfectly with the story. It is a great story to introduce young students about police officers. It can show them that they are here to protect. It is also a great story of friendship. All ages will enjoy this book!

    This is a great book all around. Amusing illustrations; themes of friendship, teamwork, and stepping outside of your comfort zone; and a fun story all come together nicely in this book. The main idea in this book seems to be accepting help, being open to friendship, and accepting strengths and weaknesses. A person of any age could learn something from this book, but the writing seems to be geared towards a younger crowd.

    I loved this book! The drawings are very detailed and follow the story line and the plot is very organized and has a good meaning behind it. The illustrations properly portray the story and add extra meaning to was it being said. Because of this children are able to have something to reference while reading. The book shows the dog doing tricks in the background while the Officer is talking and showing the children's reactions. The language was very clear and easy to understand. I also liked how the there were "tips" listed throughout the story whenever something went wrong like Officer Buckle falling out of his chair. The big idea of the story is to promote safety and understand that your friends are always there for you to support you.

    Summary:Officer Buckle, a Police Officer for Napville county, goes to Elementary school and teaches kids about safety. Every time he gives a speech about safety, the children fall alseep! One day, he brings his dog Gloria, who starts to perform tricks behind Officer Buckle, and the children are so amused. After receiving many thank you letters from the children, the news station decides to record Officer Buckle's speeches, and he later watches his speech that evening. He realizes that the children only liked Gloria, and he stopped going to safety speeches, until students wrote him letters that said "Gloria missed you yesterday!" He then realized you should always stick with your buddy. This book is great for elementary students and teaches an important message about safety and sticking close with your friends. Children can get easily bored while listening to assemblies about safety, although with the help of Gloria, this book teaches valueable safety tips such as "never run with a pop bottle in your mouth" and "never play on construction sites!" I believe this book is great for all ages in elementary school.

    Cute story about a safety officer who finds out that the dog is hamming it up during presentations, and makes his presentations more of a draw for kids. The pictures are cute and colorful.

    The humorous illustrations in this book are held in vibrant colored cartoons. The expressions in the faces of Officer Buckle and his dog Gloria look really authentic and portray the emotions of them excellently. The pictures are simple and at the same time they are entertaining and diverting and perfectly match with the story about Officer Buckle who is giving safety tips to children in schools and his new dog Gloria.

    This is a delightful story about Officer Buckle and his K-9 friend Gloria. Officer Buckle gives safety speeches at schools that usually put children to sleep, until Gloria comes along. During his speeches, Officer Buckle thinks everyone is amazed and applauding for him when really all of the attention was for Gloria and her tricks. Saddened, Officer Buckle decides to give no more safety speeches. Gloria feels lost without Officer Buckle and the two are happy again once reunited. This gives Officer Buckle an idea for safety tip number 101: "Always stick with your buddy!" It is a fun-loving story that most kids will love.

    Officer Buckle and Gloria is a humorous story of a police officer reciting rules to an elementary school. The rules are boring and this children do not like them until Gloria begins to accompany Officer Buckle on these presentation. Buring the presentationas, Gloria is demonstrating the rules behind Officer Buckle's back on stage doing back flips, summer salts, and other fun things dogs normally are not seen doing. This would be a great book for teaching kids to respect rules and elders.

    Great little book on following safety tips. Winner of the Caldecott Medal, so you know the illustrations are wonderful and the pictures really add to the story as you see the Officers "assistant" Gloria doing funny things through out the book.

    Genre: This book is a good example of a fantasy. This story is about a officer who talks about safety tips. He also has a dog friend who imitates every single move and motion that he does. While the dog does not speak it does do things that dogs are not able to do and thus it makes this story a fantasy.Setting: The setting of the book matches the story perfectly. The officer goes around school to school telling safety tips to students. Although the setting is not the most original it does work perfectly with the story and thus is a good setting.Character Review: Gloria is the antagonist of the story. The reason is that she is the one who causes the trouble with her friend officer buckle. If it were not for her there would be no problem in the story. She is also flat because we know literally nothing more about her other than that she is a dog who can do fun tricks.Age: IntermediateMedia: PastelUse: Use as a introduction to class safety rules Have students write about some safety tips they can think of for the classroom

    Officer Buckle loves to point out the safety rules, but he can't keep the attention of his audience... until Gloria the police dog joins him by his side.Great for young readers as practice. Love to do this one as a read aloud and discuss safety in the story. Also, we discuss the use of humor to keep a groups attention, as Gloria does so effectively in the story.

    Such a fun story, about a police officer Buckle, who is bound tight with lists of safety rules. He goes to elementary schools to share the list of safety rules but the children are bored. Gloria, his dog decides to spice up the talk behind the officers back and the children love it and his talks become a hit. Once officer Gloria realizes why his talks became a hit he must overcome what he feels as betrayal. It is a fun read-a-loud, the dog's antics are hilarious!!And the pictures really add to the story. Great book to talk about safety and friendship.
