I had been looking for books I could use to teach my students about treating others kindly. I bought this book along with the book, "How Full Is Your Bucket? For Kids." I was hoping it would have many suggestions of how kids can be "bucket fillers" by being kind to others and themselves. Unfortunately, it is more like a 2nd rate version of "How Full Is Your Bucket? For Kids." This book EXPLAINS the bucket concept and TELLS kids how their actions affect others, whereas "How Full Is Your Bucket? For Kids" is an engaging story that SHOWS children what the bucket concept is all about and DEMONSTRATES how their actions can hurt or help others. I love "How Full Is Your Bucket? For Kids" and intend to read it to my students, as I think it will be an effective teaching tool. Having purchased that book, this book is superfluous, and although I'll include it in my classroom library, I'm wishing I had spent the money on something else.
