Building Community: "Have You Filled a Bucket Today?" by Carol McCloud
Updated: Mar 7
This book, "Have You Filled a Bucket Today?" illustrates one positive and powerful way to build community - fill other's buckets. Through colorful pictures of people in different situations, showing abilities, attitudes, ages, backgrounds, and jobs, the author demonstrates what it means to be a bucket filler or, unfortunately, a bucket dipper.
The book's subtitle: "A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids" captures the essence of the book - by filling other's buckets, which inevitably adds to their happiness, we will be adding to our own happiness (filling our own bucket).
My suggestion: fill your children's buckets by reading this delightful book with them. You'll be filling your own bucket at the same time!
