Wrong item sent

The wrong version of this was sent to me. Not what I was looking for at all.

Good book but for younger kids

This book is cute but best for under 6 years old.

Have You Filled Your Bucket Today?

Grandkids totally loved it.

Fabulous Book----great lessons for kids and adults

Wow-I was very impressed after reading this book to my 8 & 6 yr old girls. It was very well written, extremely touching and explains how we can make people feel good every day. The book explains that we all ~everyone~ has an invisible bucket that can be filled or emptied based on what you do for them. A smile, a hello and kind words fill their buckets. It also explains how we have the power to empty peoples buckets by not being so nice. My girls are really into "filling buckets" of everyone they come in contact with now. Great book for children and parents--dont miss this one.

From a mom with pre-schoolers

This book was propped up on display at the bookstore and the title was interesting enough, so I picked it up. I immediately could tell that the message was simple and clear and bought the book, even though we have plenty of books (so many that I usually can't justify buying another). I personally don't find many children's book all that great. Either the story is dumb or the wording is dumb, or there is no point. This one is really enjoyable for me to read because they learn from it each time, and even after the first time I read it to my 4 year old, she started talking about things that we shouldn't do that can hurt other people's feelings and "dip" from their bucket. The idea of a bucket of our "good feelings and thoughts" about ourselves creates a visualization my kids can relate to and understand clearly. This goes on my personal list of maybe 20 books I love to read my children.

Great little book for all ages!

This book visually conveys a message that is often difficult to explain to children, about finding happiness through spreading happiness. Kids understand it and love it, and it helps parents explain at a kid's level why someone was mean to them. It is definitely one to read and re-read and I only wish it came in hardback to withstand the use!

A fun and engaging way for children (and adults) to learn how to treat others

The concept of bucket filling is one that kids can really understand and relate to. I read it to my three-year old, and now he asks for it every night. He loves the pictures and has even begun talking about bucket filling when he says something nice to someone. This book is a wonderful tool for families and teachers to give kids a visual way to think about kindness toward others. And it's a good reminder for adults, too!

A Terrific Book for Every Family and Classroom

This book talks about how we can each fill each others buckets (a very nice metaphor beautifully illustrated with words and drawings). How do we become "bucket fillers"? By simple things like saying something kind, smiling, showing love, and making others feel special. The book gives great examples of bucket filling, such as inviting a new kid to play, and much more. I love this book and I want to share it with everyone I know, especially families with kids. Based on the reactions of friends I've shown it to so far, the book has enormous appeal.

Have You Filled a Bucket Today: A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids in Remembering to Be Kind
Remembering to Be Kind
Published by Barbara Hagen • November 13, 2020

Kindness is one of the things we learn earliest in life. Learning to say "please" and "thank you." Being respectful. Learning to share. We should all be pretty good at this kindness thing, but when I look media posts, or news stories, or even just observe society around us, it is clear our early education in kindness has fallen by the wayside. On this World Kindness Day, November 13, 2020, let's all take a few minutes and remember some of those early life lessons.
