Officer Buckle and Gloria: A book on Safety

FullSizeRender 2There are some books that you just keep you returning to them and Officer Buckle and Gloria is one of those children’s books that makes me recommend it repeatedly because it just that good. ­čÖé

Safety is one area that homeschool families who see me for portfolio reviews ask me for ideas. This book is a great springboard for discussions on safety in that it not only has some rules, but it teaches about the concept of pride and valuing others (including animals).

After you read the book you can:

  • Write a list of ┬ásafety rules for your house.
  • Go on a scavenger hunt of things that are unsafe around the house.
  • Discuss household and bicycle safety practices.
  • Read the safety rules that are in the book and discuss the ones that pertain to your family.
