Overview

Fill a Bucket: A Guide to Daily Happiness for Young Children by Carol McCloud, Katherine Martin, David Messing

"Here's a delightful little book to warm the hearts of young children and teach them how to experience the joy of giving and receiving. Just think of all the little buckets this book will fill with love and encouragement." —Dr. Kevin Leman, author of Have a New Kid by Friday

The day you were born was a very happy day. You are a special gift. Everyone was so happy to see you. But, there was one part of you that they could not see. It was your bucket, your invisible bucket.
While using a simple metaphor of a bucket full of hearts and stars, authors Carol McCloud and Katherine Martin, M.A. illustrate, in the sweetest of ways, that we are all born with an invisible bucket and that our bucket holds all of our good thoughts and feelings. This book highlights the many ways that families and caregivers use to fill the buckets of children but also gives young children simple ideas on how to BE a bucket filler as well. This 24-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.

This is a short introduction to the concept of bucket filling and a prequel to the book Have You Filled a Bucket Today? It talks about how everyone carries an invisible bucket and how children can fill them up. It mentions things like hugs, smiles, sharing toys, and saying "please" and "thank you". When your bucket is full, you feel happy, but you feel sad when it's empty. This is a good primer on the concept of bucket filling and helps young children understand that when you do something nice for someone else, it makes both of you happy.

I read this book to my young granddaughter and she loved it! The very next day she told me very excitedly after school that one of the other first grade teachers has a bucket hanging on the wall in her classroom. Now, we use "bucket language" to let each other know how something makes us feel good or bad. This concept is a great way to share a very valuable lesson about feelings to young children.
