Bucket Filling from A to Z

I preordered this book months ago and finally they released it.  It's called Bucket Filling From A to Z: The Key to Being Happy and it is by Carol McCloud and Caryn Butzke.  This book goes right along with the other bucket filling books that I have reviewed.

This book has ideas from yes A to Z on how you can make others happy by filling their bucket and yours too.  The book always rhymes on each page making it even more fun and the rhyming touches that important phonemic awareness skill that helps children learn to read.

Some examples include: "I is for Invite.  Invite someone who's new to join in all the fun.  Their bucket will be filled because of what you've done."  "L is for Listen.  Listen with your eyes and ears when other people talk, while sitting in a classroom or going for a walk."  My favorite is S.  "S is for Smile.  Smile and see what happens.  Does a smile come back to you?  When you fill a bucket, you are really filling two."

Share your bucket filling ideas and let me know if you have read this great book.  Click the picture if you'd like to check it out on Amazon!
