Publisher SummaryAn illustrated adaptation of the long-running bestseller How Full Is Your Bucket? (more than 400,000 copies sold) for kids — told through the story of a boy who learns a valuable "bucket filling" metaphor and watches it come to life as the day unfolds.
Every moment matters.
Each of us has an invisible bucket. When our bucket is full, we feel great. When it's empty, we feel awful. Yet most children (and many adults) don't realize the importance of having a full bucket throughout the day.
In How Full Is Your Bucket? For Kids, Felix begins to see how every interaction in a day either fills or empties his bucket. Felix then realizes that everythinghe says or does to other people fills or empties their buckets as well.
Follow along with Felix as he learns how easy it can be to fill the buckets of his classmates, teachers and family members. Before the day is over, you'll see how Felix learns to be a great bucket filler, and in the process, discovers that filling someone else's bucket also fills his own.
Through the story of a little boy named Felix, this charming book explains to children how being kind not only helps others, it helps them, too. As he goes about his day, Felix interacts with different people his sister Anna, his grandfather, other family and friends. Some people are happy, but others are grumpy or sad. Using the metaphor of a bucket and dipper, Felix' grandfather explains why the happy people make Felix feel good, while the others leave him feeling bad and how Felix himself is affecting others, whether he means to or not. This beautifully illustrated adaptation takes the original book's powerful message that the way we relate to others has a profound effect on every aspect of our lives and tailors it to a child's unique needs and level of understanding.
Using the metaphor of a bucket, Felix's grandfather explains how being kind is the most fulfilling way to go about one's life and encourages him not to be dissuaded by those who choose a different path in this inspiring tale about how one person's actions can impact those of others.
