I'm an elementary school counselor and I have used the bucket filling books with students for years. They are truly awesome and are really uplifting to students. I was so excited to see Carol McCloud's new book - Growing Up With A Bucket Full of Happiness. It is everything I hoped it would be! I also love that it is geared towards the older students - 3rd grade and up. It is a chapter book and written perfectly with wonderful illustrations for the reader to look at. This is not a long book - it's just right. Carol introduces new concepts to students like:

*Group Bucket Filling
*How To Avoid Dipping
*Accidental Dipping
*Thoughtless Dipping
*Selective Dipping
*Group Dipping
*Dipping on Television
*Long-Handled Dipping
*Use Your Lid
*Use Your Lid for Others
*Advanced Bucket Fillers
*When A Lid Doesn't Work

All of this new language is exactly what the older kids need. I highly recommend teachers, parents, school librarians, and school counselors to buy this INVALUABLE resource.

Even if you are already a grownup, this book can help "clarify your thinking." Just as Carol McCloud's earlier books give children a vocabulary to describe experiences and their feelings, "Growing Up" puts into concrete words many of the things we adults wish someone had explained to us long before we learned them the hard way. Yet this book is not preachy. It is clear and matter of fact, yet filled with warmth, and it gives readers tools to incorporate the practice of happiness into their daily lives.

I'm a k-5 PE teacher who also has the Health curriculum, my school has adopted the BUCKET FILLING program by Tim Roth and it's working wonderfully to create a cohesive, empathetic culture. All of the books are great but this one rocks!!

Just sent this to staff and friends in education...

Dave and I are reading it to 1-5th , we are on pg 25 and its inspired a huge language change for myself when dealing with conflicts and tons of conversations with not only our students but Dave and I and my family and friends this one is reverberating like and bassoon!!!

I bought this book for my kids and they grasped the idea of bucket filling immediately. I have read a lot of books on happiness for adults, but none of them drove home the point like this one. I highly recommend this book for children and adults.

This book is a must read for all parents, teachers, children, teens...everyone. We need to understand that this kind of love and kindness is the only thing that is going to heal our world, one person at a time. You will learn how to help yourself and those closest to you be the best they can be in a really positive way. My friend's school district adopted this program (books at early and middle school years as well as adult) and it has been a really positive addition to their school programs. Imagine if each one of us became concerned about filling each other's buckets with kind words and deeds on a daily basis?

I purchased the book to teach children to be helpful to others and to teach them to have a positive outlook in life. I believe that if children grow up thinking positive, it will be so much easier for them to face life's challenges throughout their lives.

This book is for older children in upper elementary and middle school. It delves deeper into the concept of bucket filling and dipping. It talks about things like bullying, accidental or thoughtless bucket dipping, and when having an empty bucket isn't your fault. It discusses ways for kids to keep their buckets full and avoid things that will empty their buckets (like cheating and cyberbullying). It also talks about developing talents, working hard, and standing up for others.

I love the concept of an invisible bucket that everyone carries with them. It's a great lesson for kids of all ages to learn. This book helps kids understand the basic concepts of kindness and honesty and how they will help increase their happiness.
