Excellent Resource!
"I am a 5th grade teacher and purchased this book late last school year. I immediately began incorporating some of the lessons and character building activities into my end-of-year routine. The students enjoyed the poems and activities and I know it helped remind them of the simple things we can do to "fill each other's buckets" on a daily basis. I am excited to start the next school year with the activities in this book...what a great way to set the stage for a classroom of students who show respect, care for one another, and want to brighten the lives of their classmates with kind gestures. I will certainly continue using this book throughout the whole school year. It is an excellent resource for any grade level!"
