The Bucket Fillers

Madi came home from school the other day all pumped up about a new book they read in class. It was about how we all carry a little bucket with us, and when we say or do something nice for someone, it helps to fill their bucket. It also fills our own bucket, because we feel good having done something nice for someone else.

Conversely, mean words or actions can empty one's bucket, and our own.

We all became so excited about filling each others buckets that we couldn't stop talking about it. All three of us vowed that we will work hard at being "bucket fillers."

So if you see us out and about, and we are disgustingly nice, sickeningly sweet, and oozing with goodness, we might be trying to fill your bucket!

I love this idea!! Do you know what the name of the book was? I looked on Amazon, but there appear to be several books that look pretty similar. I'd love to get it for my kiddos!
