How Full Is Your Bucket?

In a previous blog post I shared with you the book and song for "Have You Filled A Bucket Today."  Click the picture to head to that post!

I recently ordered a book that goes with that one called "How Full Is Your Bucket?" for kids.  This book is by Tom Rath and Mary Reckmeyer.  This is my personal opinion of the book, nobody asked me to review it.


This story is about a boy named Felix who realizes what he does and says either fills his and others buckets or dips his bucket and others.  By the end of the story he realizes it is best to fill others buckets because in return he will be happy and his own bucket will get filled. 

In the beginning of the story he is building with blocks when in walks his sister who wants to help.  He is mean to her and won't let her and calls her names.  In return she knocks the blocks over.  His Grandpa helps him realize that he dipped into his sisters invisible bucket and explains to him that he has a bucket too.  You'll have to check out the book with great real life examples to find out what else happens!

I think this is a great book for any Elementary age children!  Great for discussions on doing the right thing and being kind to others.  Click the picture to check it out on Amazon!

Do you have this book?  How do you use in in the classroom?

Thanks for hoppin' by Hopkins' Hoppin' Happenings!  Keep on smiling!  By doing so you'll be a bucket filler!
