Through simple prose and vivid illustrations, this heartwarming book encourages positive behavior as children see how rewarding it is to express daily kindness, appreciation, and love. Bucket filling and dipping are effective metaphors for understanding the effects of our actions and words on the well being of others and ourselves.
From the Author:
Who could imagine that a 32-page picture book teaching children the benefits of kindness through the metaphor or a bucket would take off and become one of the most effective character development programs offered to all ages. That’s bucket filling.
 
A bucketfiling school is a great place to learn. A bucketfiling family is a great place to grow up. A bucketfilling community is a great place to live. These are place where kindness, respect, fairness, other-centeredness, responsibility, and generosity are seen. Bucket fillng is easy. It doesn’t cost any money. It doesn’t take much time. It doesn’t matter how young or old you are. Bucket filing makes everyone feel good.
 
The concept of bucket filling is an effective metaphor for encouraging kind and considerate behavior and for teaching the benefits of positive relationships.
