Buckets, Dippers, and Lids: Secrets to Your Happiness

Carol McCloud (Author) Glen Zimmer (Illustrator)


"I've been a big fan of the timeless concept of Bucket Filling . . . This newcomer . . . brings an important dimension to the idea of filling and dipping by addressing the invisible lid to help with what to do with the ouches in life. . . I think you'll find it'll make the intangible concepts of kindness, resilience and grit something that our learners can hold on to and apply as they learn to sail the somewhat stormy seas of life." --Barbara Gruener, The Corner on Character

The latest release in the bestselling Bucket Fillers line takes the concept of bucket filling one step further by adding the idea that we also have an invisible lid. We "use our lid" to protect and keep the happiness inside our bucket. Offering charming illustrations with personified buckets, dippers, and lids, readers learn what gives happiness, what takes it away, and what protects it. This concrete concept helps children of all ages grow in understanding, kindness, self-control, resilience, empathy, and forgiveness. A valuable teaching tool for home, school, and life, this is a stand-alone or companion book to the other award-winning books by Bucket Fillers, Inc.
