Have You Filled A Bucket Today – A Guide To Daily Happiness For Kids By Carol McCloud

How often do we consciously think about how our everyday actions make us feel and make others feel? A kind word, a smile, using thank you and please, waiting our turn in a queue, a seat for the elderly – little acts of kindness that can spread the light

If you are looking to share this concept with your children, then this is the book for you! I’ve read this lovely book numerous times with my daughter and it’s always heart warming.

An invisible bucket which holds our happiness – the book beautifully uses this metaphor to explain how we can fill up our own buckets and others buckets thought little acts of kindness. It encourages positive behavior and conscious awareness and its equally true for both children and adults alike.

I’ve converted it into a game also with my little girl – as we go through our day we consciously think about how little acts of kindness help us fill our bucket and share the joy with others too. “Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” Scott Adams

Have You Filled A Bucket Today is a treasure to read and to live by…..and don’t forget to play the game with your kids after you read it 🙂

May your bucket always be full! #giftthelight
