What a wonderful way to ignite children's desire to do loving things for others as well assist them on their journey toward being self-aware individuals. I have read this to my 5th-8th grade students as an introduction to working successfully in groups. The concepts were well recieved and have been incorporated into our daily routines.

Fantastic book, perfect for preschool to fifth grade! Oct 25, 2007
I am a social worker and I not oly use this book in one on one counseling but use it in classroom presentations. The county I live in has also incorperated this book into it's ciriculum for every elementary school. It is a great way to teach kids about feelings, bullying and self esteem. We also use an actually bucket in the classrooms to make it an interactive learning tool.
