This book was propped up on display at the bookstore and the title was interesting enough, so I picked it up. I immediately could tell that the message was simple and clear and bought the book, even though we have plenty of books (so many that I usually can't justify buying another). I personally don't find many children's book all that great. Either the story is dumb or the wording is dumb, or there is no point. This one is really enjoyable for me to read because they learn from it each time, and even after the first time I read it to my 4 year old, she started talking about things that we shouldn't do that can hurt other people's feelings and "dip" from their bucket. The idea of a bucket of our "good feelings and thoughts" about ourselves creates a visualization my kids can relate to and understand clearly. This goes on my personal list of maybe 20 books I love to read my children.
