Another Peggy Rathmann book that we fell in love with! My grandkids had fun reading Officer Buckle's notes throughout the book. Officer Buckle is the safety officer but he doesn't make an impact until Gloria the police dog becomes his partner. Gloria wakes the kids up and gets their attention. Meanwhile, Napville becomes a much more safe place. They are filmed and Officer Buckles sees that it's because of Gloria that he's had so much success-he gets bummed and gives up the safety speaking tour. Napville ends up having a huge disaster and he sees how much his message is still needed and how much his partner needs him too. It's a fun way to learn about safety and to have the kids spot the unsafe and safe ways of doing things. Highly recommend!
