Officer Buckle and Gloria, by Peggy Rathmann, Scholastic, 1996.
We own a version of this book that is narrated by John Lithgow -- that probably makes all the difference in the world. I could read this book, and it would be amusing; John Lithgow reads it and it is downright hilarious. Still, even when I read it, there are some good features to the book. The book is a great way to teach about safety. And a great way to teach that, even though things may not go exactly as we've planned, that doesn't mean they didn't work out right.
