I was introduced to this book back when I was a senior in high school. My mentor teacher at the time was reading it to her students and I fell in love with the concept of the underlying message. It teaches positive behavior to students and shows them how rewarding it can be when you are kind and respectful to everyone you meet. It talks about how everyone should strive to be bucket fillers instead of bucket dippers. It shows students how important it is for students to know how being nice and kind to others can pay off in the long run. Everyone should treat others the way that they want to be treated. I would recommend this book for any elementary grade and read it to the students at the beginning of the year to set a pace and show the students what you are expected from them as friends instead of enemies.

This book helps explain how to make others happy. Instead of putting people down, everyone wills each others buckets with remarkable confidence boosters.
For ages 3-6.

this shows that kindness not only makes others feel good but also yourself.

This picture book teaches kids to always be nice to people and uses a bucket to teach. It is a great book for preschool through first grade.
