**Contest Update – more prizes! See Below and enter before December 1, 2008***

Last week on our sister blog The Snuggles Podcast we featured a new book we found called “Have You Filled a Bucket Today” by Carol McCloud.  It’s a lovely little book, perfect for preschoolers and toddlers with adorable illustrations.  It’s just sweet.

Listen to the Snuggles Podcast version of the story:

Carol has taken the ideas of the book and built an entire website and movement, so to speak, to help children (and adults) become bucket fillers.

From her website:

What are Bucketfillers?

“Bucket fillers” are those who help without being asked, give hugs and compliments, and generally spread their love and good feelings to others. The simple metaphor of a bucket helps even preschoolers understand the importance of consideration and love, particularly towards those who bully.

Through schools and other means she puts on seminars around the country helping children to see the value of being bucketfillers. She also has products for families and schools to proudly proclaim “I’m a bucketfiller”. You can see those when you visit her website.

Carol was kind enough to send us several of her great books to giveaway here on the site so if you’d like one, please comment below before November 29, 2008 for a chance to win one of 6 of these great books! I’ll choose the 6 names and announce the winners on December 1, 2008.

  1. I absolutely love this book Not only do I read it to the preschoolers and other children for which I run enrichment and entertainment programs, I also use it at networking meetings to make sure that my peers know that they are helping to fill my bucket with happiness and gratitude. Every child and every adult should read this book !

  2. Thanks Susan for stopping by. It’s great to hear someone who is using this book in so many ways. I’ve entered you in the contest to win another one so you can share it with others too! 😉

  3. I was looking for some quality books to read to my sons and came across this one. They love spending ‘daddy time’ reading a good book or two before bed and I think this might be an excellent choice for them.
