This book is a great introduction to self-awareness and feelings for younger students. I teach 2nd grade and use this at the start of every year. It helps students to visualize how their actions and words impact others.

This book is a great introduction to self-awareness and feelings for younger students. They get to take all of the slips in their bucket home on Fridays (which is a great way to end the week and students REALLY look forward to it). I occasionally re-read this as issues arise in the classroom or in the school and have students do the work by telling me how the issues relate to the book and bucket filling/dipping.

Have You Filled Your Bucket Today?" is a book about feelings and making the right choices. It's a great book with illustrations appropriate for kids. I definitely want to pick up my own copy of this book for our household library. The book uses an invisible bucket, that everyone has, to help illustrate how to fill your bucket and how you would feel with your bucket full. In contrast, it speaks of a bucket dipper and how that feels when you become a bucket dipper.

This book is so repetitive it's annoying for a parent to read, but I always try to make every book sound fun and exciting so that my son has a chance to enjoy it. Here's why it is boring: they beat a dead horse with the buckets, it's not cute, creative, or inventive. There's nothing exciting visually either. I believe my son was getting bored with it on the second read so I skimmed it to make it less repetitive and boring for him. The only reason we even read it a second time was because it was one of the only new books we had that night. This is why I would advise other readers considering this book to rent it from the library first and then decide for yourself. I would have been very disappointed had I purchased it first.

I got this book thinking, "WOW! What a neat book for my preschooler who is coming to terms with some truly nasty kids that we encounter at the library, playground, etc., etc." But this book was truly bothersome, troublesome, and problematic offering NO solutions except to co-dependently fill up other's emotional voids. The bullies and nasty kids who are teasing and excluding that one Asian-looking young girl are not addressed at all; we see these bullies actually standing there with FULL BUCKET DIPPERS!! Even my preschooler thought that the bullies were filling up the bucket of the tormented children. Such a demented story. I'm sure the authors were very well intentioned but the message is so simplistic and impractical to the 2014 of today where we see bullying, racism, sexism-- and I'm talking PURE misogyny, homophobia, exclusion, Anti-Semitism, xenophobia, right wing conservative ideology and intolerance EVERYWHERE. This book needs to be re-written with a chapter about RESPECT and EMPATHY. Worse yet, the bullies depicted in this story seem to be getting off scot-free with absolutely NO consequences or discipline. It's as though bullies and these nasty girls who tease others for being different just linger everywhere in the shadow as a constant threat. I am REALLY disappointed with this book. If you are in need a very good and effective book to explain to your child HOW to deal with these ever-present bullies, I highly recommend: Dealing With Bullies (Keeping the Peace) [Pam Scheunemann]. EXELLENT BOOK AND SERIES. CHECK IT OUT! 6/2/14 UPDATE: while you're at it, buy the Free To Be You & Me CD-Rom; my preschooler is entranced; I grew up with this music and I think it just sends a much needed message to today's children and youth.

Very disappointed by this book. I expected a story,...or something! It's just so simple. It's concept is simple, the text is simple, and the illustrations are too childish for any kid over 3. Had I seen it in a store, I NEVER would've bought it for my 4yo. It's flimsy, thin, small, and just poorly executed. I'll probably end up giving it to Goodwill...

I bought this book new based on it being so highly rated. It is a cute book with nice illustrations. The message about being nice to others is a good one. However, I don't think it lives up to its high rating. Being nice makes you and others feel good is such a basic teaching of Christianity, and it can be found in many children Christian books and Veggie Tales movies. So, this book was nothing new and exciting. The bucket metaphor is pretty good, but my son (age 4) didn't really get into it. And, it is sooooooo repetitive it is annoying to read as a parent!

I can see that the book would be good in a school setting where you want to teach kids to be nice but are unable to make any definitive moral statements. But, if you are a parent, this book is weak. I mean, I want to teach my kid it is WRONG to be mean because it is against God's commandments to lie, covet, harm you neighbor, etc. Wrong is wrong. So, using some fluffy metaphor about a bucket is maybe a nice little addition but it certainly isn't a foundations of moral teaching.

It's a good book, but not great.

Fill a Bucket by Carol McCloud and Katherine Martin, M.A., and is illustrated by David Messing.  This book is a "Guide to Daily Happiness for Young Children."  This book refers to bucket dippers and fillers as those who give put downs or put ups.  It is a visual way to help explain esteem and confidence to young children.  It is part of the bucket series, this one being for the youngest.

What I disliked: It is what I was expecting.

What I liked: This was an excellent tool for explaining emotions to the young children I worked with; specifically it was an excellent tool they used to express themselves to me.  Instead of "Charlie is a jerk," and then crossing their arms and huffing, the students after reading the book would be like, "Charlie was a bucket dipper!  He took my pencil and wouldn't give it back!"  

Or, to the contrary, they may come dancing into my office and announce, "My bucket is full today!  First, Mom let me have a doughnut for breakfast.  Then Jill on the bus shared her iPod.  Then at school Mrs. A said she loved the picture I colored for her.  I filled her bucket, but mine is full, too!"  It gave the students and I a common language to share life together that lasted long after they left my office.

I would suggest having this book on hand for early elementary teachers and school social workers.  It came in handy for the right students, and also gave entire classrooms language to use when discussing classroom culture. 

I used it as a School Social Worker during the month of February when our Character theme of the month was Caring, though it could be expanded to other character traits as well.  We read and talked about the book.  I then gave the class stars and hearts to fill out and when they noticed their bucket being filled, they wrote or drew the nice action and turned it in to their teacher.  On the door leading into the classroom was a gigantic bucket, and the students were excited to see their classroom bucket fill.  There are lots of free resources online with their correlating website bucketfillers101.com.
