Picture books for everyone

Officer Buckle and Gloria by Petty Rathmann

Officer Buckle wants nothing more than to keep the residents of Napville safe. Unfortunately, his safety presentations put everyone to sleep. When he takes along Napville's new police dog, though, people start to take notice. Kids of all ages will delight in the highly expressive Gloria and the way she acts out all of the safety tips (#80 - Wipe up drool) which are included in the story and the cover liners. Some small kids enjoy this book but it is a somewhat subtle plot that relies on the text and images in concert to an extent that not all kids are able to understand. Even adults find this book charming.
