Fill a Bucket

A Guide to Daily Happiness for Young Children

By Carol McCloud

Illustrated by David Messing


With an uplifting message, Fill a Bucket speaks to young readers in clear, gentle language about what it means to be a bucket filler. The book introduces children to the concept of invisible buckets we carry around with us, and what it means to fill a bucket or to dip from a bucket. Describing our buckets as the way we carry positive thoughts and feelings, this book helps identify the character traits that will keep our buckets full: empathy, kindness, resilience, and more.

What can each of us do to be bucket fillers? What happens if our bucket begins to empty? Why does it matter if we dip into other people’s buckets? Using terminology from the bestselling series, Fill A Bucket explores the importance of acting in socially thoughtful ways.
