Officer Buckle and Gloria is the name of the 1995 story and main characters of the story by Peggy Rathmann that won the 1996 Caldecott Medal. It talks about a police officer (Officer Buckle) getting a dog named Gloria. Until that time, whenever Officer Buckle tried to tell schools about safety everyone fell asleep. Then, unbeknownst to Officer Buckle (literally, behind his back), Gloria does tricks to demonstrate safety rules, and Gloria is a big success. When Officer Buckle finds out that the schoolchildren are so enthusiastic because of Gloria, he refuses to teach safety and a huge accident happens. A letter from a sweet girl, named Claire, convinces Officer Buckle to start teaching again. In the end, Officer Buckle and Gloria go to many schools and teach the students about safety together.
