Officer Buckle and Gloria is an adorable and humorous book. The way Office Buckle’s dog Gloria steals the show is funny and captivating.

Gloria goes to the schools without her partner, but can’t do the show without Office Buckle’s presentation. It is often hard to teach young children the simple rules of life or important lessons to live by and Office Buckle tries so hard when he gives his safety speeches to the children, but they just don’t listen. The part I enjoyed the most in the book was when the children wrote letters to Office Buckle and Gloria appreciating the show on safety.

I thought the illustrations in this book made the book very enjoyable with its pictures colorful and very entertaining. Peggy Rathmann is the author and illustrator of Officer Buckle and Gloria.

The author allow for readers to relate to text and self, such as friendship because friendship is a necessary aspect of every human’s life. Even though it’s needed sometimes we as humans have been forced or morally required to end some relationships. Friendship is one of the most important relationships that form our lives.
