Have You Filled a Bucket Today?

HAVE YOU FILLED A BUCKET TODAY?  is a must have in every home and classroom. This book is about expressing daily kindness with the image of filling invisible buckets that all people carry (that’s being a “bucket filler”). It also addresses “bucket dipping” — being unkind. I love this book because it gives my family common language to express the effects of our words and actions on each other.  My children and I recently made buckets together and filled them with appreciations on cards that they decorated. They love filling each other’s buckets!
