This is my eldest reading Carol McCloud's book: Have You Filled a Bucket Today?
If anyone out there is looking for an exceptional book to teach the core concept of kindness and why we shouldn't bully, look no further!
I'm sure you're not surprised to hear that we try to teach kindness in our family. But, this book solidified the concept completely... even with this little guy who is only 4!
Friends recommended this book to me this week. It teaches us that when we are kind (bucket fillers) we fill other people's buckets and our own too. But, the flip side is if we are unkind (bucket dippers) we empty others' buckets along with our own.
The book is simple, joyful, and brilliant. It led to about 4 different conversations today alone - and helped him see the impact of his actions (both positive and negative) in every situation.
The friends who recommended it work with people of all ages - from primary school to top C execs in multinational corporations - and find it useful everywhere!
So, my guess is that you'll love it too!
