Description

Product Description

"Children are not the only ones that need to learn how to be truly happy. It''s all in the bucket, that invisible bucket that follows you everywhere. . . teaches young readers valuable lessons about giving, sharing, and caring. This guide to daily happiness, though, is not just for kids. We all need reminders of the benefits of positive thinking and positive behavior. It''s an important lesson to teach and remind us all . . . that showing kindness and appreciation of others goes along way to making this world a happier place for everyone, including ourselves. A classic tale, beautifully told and beautifully shared." -Emily-Jane Hills Orford, Readers'' Favorite Book Reviews
 
While using a simple metaphor of a bucket and a dipper, author Carol McCloud illustrates that when we choose to be kind, we not only fill the buckets of those around us, but also fill our OWN bucket!    Conversely,when we choose to say or do mean things, we are dipping into buckets.   All day long, we are either filling up or dipping into each other''s buckets by what we say and what we do. When you''re a bucket filler, you make the world a better place to be! This 32-page picture book is perfect for children,parents, grandparents,   teachers and people that want to teach empathy, nurture kindness and create a positive environment in their home, classroom, workplace and community.
 
Winner of 16 awards. For more information on bucket filling or free downloadables and resources, please visit bucketfillers101.com.

This book is a great introduction to self-awareness and feelings for younger students. I teach 2nd grade and use this at the start of every year. It helps students to visualize how their actions and words impact others. I also print off small "bucket slips" where my students write positive things to each other, have them checked by me, and then put them into the other student''s bucket. They get to take all of the slips in their bucket home on Fridays (which is a great way to end the week and students REALLY look forward to it). I occasionally re-read this as issues arise in the classroom or in the school and have students do the work by telling me how the issues relate to the book and bucket filling/dipping.

I HIGHLY recommend purchasing this book for your classroom and I''ve attached a picture of an example of the bucket slips and our bucket-filling center in my classroom.

I used this regularly in my preschool classroom to promote conscious discipline and positive guidance. It helped a lot of behavioral problems. It is a great book, I broke it down into two settings upon the first read aloud, but we review it often and make references to it. We created our own visual bucket and filled it with nice things we had done to fill other''s bucket or that others did to fill our bucket. The children that you were not responding well in empathy before, began to hug sad children without prompting, sharing, and talking to vistors about how they fill others bucket. When they were upset, I would hear them tell the children that they tipped their bucket and made them sad. Highly recommended.

My 3 year old immediately "got it": he began asking if specific behaviors were filling or dipping from people''s buckets. He played with the idea of intentionally wanting to be bad, and intentionally dipping, but also earnestly would ask if something he did thoughtfully was filling my bucket. He began to think about people - including the President of the USA - in terms of bucket fillers or dippers. He also liked the story itself and the images, and asked to read it a second time the following day so he could continue to process this new paradigm. I''m glad I got this book.

I''ve had this book on my son''s wishlist for years now. I finally ordered it and wish I would have done it much sooner! My kids (ages 4 & 6) both really enjoy this book. My 6 year old really loves the concept of filling other peoples buckets and having his own bucket filled. He will catch my attention and give me a big goofy grin and then ask "Mom, did I fill your bucket??!" Or when his sister does something nice for him he will say "that was so nice of you to fill my bucket". I love the concept of building people up and thus filling their buckets. I wish there was more talk about how you can fill your own bucket as well rather than rely on others to fill your bucket. However, this book does a great job of prompting this type of conversation with your kids.

I began using this book with my school''s bully prevention program as a way to help us look at what we can do to help each other rather than focus on what so many people are doing in a negative way. It has been something that has stayed with students throughout the year with some classrooms making little paper buckets to put at their desks for others to put good notes into. I just can''t say enough about how wonderful this book is and how life-changing it can be for all who read it.

The 31 page book is a nice way to say by helping make others feel good we feel good, and when people are nice to us it makes us feel good, and when people are mean to us it makes us feel bad and they do it because they don''t feel good about themselves.

It was good in that it dealt with both adults and children (but it only showed children being mean to other children...I think it is important to give children permission to realize that adults can be bullies also...including their own parents and teachers. Often children think the authority figure is just "right" and accept whatever is said to them.)

It was good that it said that a bully dipper was someone that says or did mean things that made others feel bad. And that they did this because they thought that the could fill their own bucket by dipping into someone else''s bucket.

It was good that it told the reader that when they did good to other they would feel good and fill their own bucket.

BUT what I wished it had also said was just TWO more things:
1. That you can help fill your own bucket by saying good things to yourself everyday.
2. That when you realized someone was dipping into your bucket...that you could help stop them from empting your bucket by asking yourself, "Is this 100% true?"

I would have like a few examples with each like:
BULLY: You are stupid. BLOCK: My mother says I am smart, and so do my friends...or they say I am nice, loving, good....
What IS stupid? I am smarter than my little brother, does that make him stupid? Sam is smarter
than the bully, does that make the bully stupid? IS what the bully said ALL the truth? (of course
this needs to be a little simpler maybe...but that''s the idea.)
BULLY: You are ugly. BLOCK: I may not be the prettiest person, but I am OK. I like how my hair looks. My dog thinks I am
beautiful! So WHAT IS the truth? I have a zit right now, but the rest of me is OK, I am NOT ugly.

I think that it is IMPORTANT that we take responsibility for ourselves, and our own thoughts and feelings and not just wait for things to happen TO us. I think that is important to teach to children, that though what others say or do to us can hurt us, we can help prevent this and heal this. Otherwise we LEARN stinking thinking, and often don''t change even when we become adults.

I read the description of the book and a few reviews and really liked the concept. I read the book first when it arrived and thought it was probably a bit premature for my 2 year old and did not expect her to understand the message but maybe like the pictures, go over the colors, what she sees, etc.

We read this book a couple of times when to my surprise, one day my daughter gave me a kiss and a hug and said "I fill bucket." I was floored! Being objective, my child is cute, fun and smart but I would not say she is overly advanced and that''s why I was so taken aback by her statement! I thought it was well beyond her level of understanding but she proved me wrong. There must be something in this book that captures a child''s attention and drives the message home. This will be a constant in out reading routine and list of books we will continue to read over and over.

We bought this book for each of our Dads and Grandpas for Father''s Day with a bucket filled with their favorite treats and goodies and a note about how they have filled our buckets. We read it to my 3-year-old and I was amazed that she understood the concept. After we read this book to her, her behavior was even better than it usually is. She would give out sincere compliments, hugs, help others without being asked and then would say, "You filled my bucket and I filled yours!" She loved learning how to fill others'' buckets and she gets so excited when she does nice things for others. I am so surprised that people reviewed this book negatively. Granted, I do believe that we are each in charge of our own emotions and we choose how to feel and interpret others'' actions; However, this book is so positive and gives children (and even adults) ideas on how to do nice things for others to "fill their buckets." What is bad about teaching children how to do nice things for others and not to bully? Even adults need to learn this concept too.

I highly recommend this book and it makes a great gift for teachers, grandparents, etc.

This book itself is fantastic and I am looking forward to incorporating the bucket idea into the children’s daily life’s, it’s a great life skill to create. Unfortunately the condition of the book was not great, I know I purchased a used book but I did not expect to receive a book with chocolate & what appeared to be jam also on the covers and inside. I would of thought especially in the times in which we are currently living items would arrive in a hygienic way. It’s lucky it was not peanut butter etc as my daughter is severely anaphylactic.

I bought this for myself initially (child mentality??!!) because I thought the Amazon reviews were interesting and wanted to see for myself. It is good. I passed it on because I like the idea of children being inspired by it.
