Have You Filled a Bucket Today? A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids


Product Description

Published USA, 2015 (new edition)
The bucket represents a child's mental and emotional health. You can't see the bucket but it's there. When you hold, caress, nurture, touch, sing, play and provide loving attention, safety and care, you fill your child's bucket.

This book was written to teach young children how to be 'bucket fillers'. Parents and teachers can help children think about what they might say or do to fill someone else's bucket.

Your bucket has one purpose only. Its purpose is to hold your good thoughts and good feelings about yourself. You feel very happy and good when your bucket is full and you feel very sad and lonely when your bucket is empty. You fill a bucket when you show love to someone, when you say or do something kind, or even when you give someone a smile.

This delightful book leads the child to draw from the wisdom of his or her own heart. The power of affirming words and actions will strengthen friendships and spread joy in a simple and enduring concept of bucket filling.
