I love how the simple text and vivid pictures in the Bucket Filler books such as Fill a Bucket: A Guide to Daily Happiness for the Young Child really reach children in a language they can understand. The new book in the set is called Will You Fill My Bucket?: Daily Acts of Love Around the World . Will You Fill My Bucket reminds us that no matter where you are in the world, your bucket is always with you. And even people in other countries have buckets too and they are filled just like ours. This book is one to read after you have read Have You Filled a Bucket Today and discussed the book and its ideas with your students or children. It does not go into detail about what being "bucket filler" or a "bucket dipper" is; instead, it shows adults around the world in different countries filling the buckets of children. It starts in America with a child sitting on the lap of a mother riding a subway into New York City. They are reading a story with the filled bucket next to them. The simple text on the page asks; "Will you fill my bucket and hold me on your lap?" You travel through North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia visiting each page of the book and seeing how adults everywhere can fill buckets, "with the love that comes from you!" The last page of the story sums it all up with an illustration of many different people from different places on Earth loving each other and holding their filled buckets. The last lines of text simply state; "I want to fill your bucket and it fills my bucket too... when I show you that I love you because I truly do."
The books illustrations do not disappoint and do a good job of telling the story without even reading the words. Seeing the happy people in different parts of the world is also a nice geography lesson as well. The first two pages shows a map of the world and children holding their buckets ready to be filled.
I recommend reading this book to your own children or students after reading a discussing Have You Filled a Bucket Today. Will You Fill My Bucket will give many examples of ways we can fill others buckets. Also, be sure to Google Search bucket filling idea online. There are many resources that can be used with these books. The Bucket-Filling Three-Book Set is also a great deal. Be sure to remind the kiddos in your life how much they fill your bucket by being part of your day!

Mon enfant de 3 ans n'a pas accroché non plus et m'a dit "mais moi je n'ai pas de seau..." : il n'a pas compris le concept (malgré qu'on ait d'abord lu Did you filla bucket today).
J'aime mieux les livres "The Way I Feel" de Spelman notamment "when I care about others" qui parle exactement de ce sujet mais de manière directe, honnête et juste (sans passer par des petits coeurs et étoiles). Il explique simplement que faire du bien aux autres est agréable et que nous le faisons parce que nous aimons quand les autres nous font du bien. Et les dessins sont chouettes. Bref c'est plus "organique", authentique...
