The first book: Have You Filled a Bucket Today?: A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids (Bucketfilling Books) Paperback – Illustrated, October 1, 2015
While using a simple metaphor of a bucket and a dipper, author Carol McCloud illustrates that when we choose to be kind, we not only fill the buckets of those around us, but also fill our OWN bucket! Conversely, when we choose to say or do mean things, we are dipping into buckets. All day long, we are either filling up or dipping into each other's buckets by what we say and what we do. When you're a bucket filler, you make the world a better place to be! This 32-page picture book is perfect for children, parents, grandparents, teachers and people that want to teach empathy, nurture kindness and create a positive environment in their home, classroom, workplace and community.
Bucket Fillers is committed to giving 50% of all proceeds to non-profits that serve children and families. For more information on bucket filling or free downloadables and resources, please visit bucketfillers101.com.
Day #2 of BE KIND TO ONE ANOTHER DAY!
Meet SPIKE, The Penguin with Rainbow Hair!
Join me as we showcase a new book a day in the month of May for BK21A Day!
It can feel wonderful to have all eyes on you… for about a minute. After that it feels uncomfortable, distracting, and for children, it can feel downright BAD.
Adorable Spike was born to stand out, but all he wants is to blend in! Spike wants to be the same as the other penguins, because then he won’t feel the discomfort of being different.
Nothing he tries works, not the new hat, squid ink, not even a big haircut! How will Spike ever realize that he doesn't have to change?
Perfect for starting the conversation with kids who struggle with the discomfort of being different.
Thank you to the wonderful Sarah Cullen and Carmen Ellis for sharing their amazing book for this event! More posts are coming about her book, but I just couldn't wait to share this one. Isn't SPIKE adorable!!??

Celebrating Day #3 of "Be Kind To One Another Days" featuring UK author Daniel Williamson's wonderful book, T-Rex Twins: The Brothers with arms, is about being born different and how being unique can be your greatest strength. When the twins' long arms get in the way they are teased and outcast by the other dinosaurs but everything changes as word soon spreads when they invent the world's first hug!
