True Bucketfilling Stories: Legacies of Loveby Stacey A. Lundgren
A popular character education professional transforms ANTI-BULLYING into PRO-KINDNESS and PRO-EMPATHY with these ten powerful, true stories. Each tells of ordinary people who leave an indelible, positive imprint on humanity by making a simple choice. Story characters choose to react with selflessness rather than selfishness, with gentleness rather than violence, with love and kindness rather than hate or anger. Any of us can choose to be a bucket filler, a person who treats others with kindness, or a bucket dipper, a person who treats others carelessly. Reading level is age 9 to adult. Share these unforgettable stories with children you love and easily teach the power of compassion, forgiveness, and the miracles that can be created by expressing love. For use in classrooms and families, each story ends with "Let's Talk About It", discussion questions that will facilitate talks about feelings and choices. The READING LEVEL is for children, age 9 and up. Parents, teachers, and social workers are also enjoying the stories!

"True Bucketfilling Stories" is proof positive that lives can be changed by the power of caring and by communicating that we care. The book shares ten stories that need to be told over and over, stories of ordinary people who overcame and helped others to overcome by words and acts of kindness. As a retired elementary principal for 23 years and author of the book "The Power of Caring for Elementary Schools," I really identify with and appreciate the fine work Stacey Lundgren is doing in our schools all across America. In my book this author is a five star person!
This book has been invaluable in teaching my children to be kind, and they just love the stories and characters. No matter how many times they read the stories, my kids laugh and cry (right along with me). What a great antidote to bullying, too. It's perfect for ages 8 to adult. My children can easily relate to many of the characters because they are real people in real situations. Thank you to the author for bringing us this breath of fresh air in a sometimes stale world!
