From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 2—Based on the author's adult work How Full Is Your Bucket? (Gallup, 2004), this book explains that we all have invisible buckets of water over our heads. The negative actions of others toward us can empty the buckets, and our own meanness toward them can deplete their vessels, too. Positive actions reverse the process. Felix refuses to allow his sister to play blocks with him. When she angrily kicks over his tower, his grandfather explains that Felix dipped from his sister's container. The next morning Felix actually sees a bucket floating over his own head, and during the course of the day, as he is alternately bullied and praised, he realizes what causes it to be empty or full. This story is so heavy-handed and didactic that children are likely to find it laughable. Neither Felix, his sister, nor even their dog is a likable character, and the floating buckets over everyone's head look just plain silly.—Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ END

The story follows Felix as he learns that everyone has an invisible bucket that can be filled or emptied, depending on how people treat each other. It shows several examples of bucket filling and bucket emptying, that children can easily comprehend and learn from. Felix feels the effects of being both filled and emptied, and he changes from being a bucket dipper (an emptier) to a bucket filler. This is an excellent story that I cannot wait to share with my students!!!
