Bucket Fillers

The concept of bucket filling is to use actions and words to make someone feel good about themselves, to enhance resilience and inspire them to achieve internal happiness.  For example, it is more important to encourage a person after a mistake rather than berate them.  It more heart warming to say thank you and appreciate someone’s help rather than staying silent. Finally, it is noble and appreciative if you give someone your umbrella if it’s raining.

It is important to teach the concept of Bucket filling and the sense of giving unreservedly in the younger age.  Bucket Filling books provide guidance in the concept of giving, respecting and promoting a cohesive playground where kids learn for other students. These concepts are already encouraged in schools but we would like to reinforce the schools objectives in a fun, creative and endearing way.  This is done through pictures and words that are easy to understand on the value of Bucket filling.
