This bucket book is too negative - the first one is better!
on 9 September 2017
Despite the fact that the language in this book is easy to read and that the metaphor of the bucket, as a container of compliments or criticisms, and kind acts or meanness which influence our emotions and how we deal with other people, is a great but hard concept for under 7s to understand. However, it is a super class book for PSD for P2 or P3 when we focus on the positive and how we all feel good when filled with our or other people's good deeds and kind, polite words.
As this is an American text it is a bit preachy in places especially where it focuses too much on the negative ways we can empty other people's buckets by being unkind, and through ungenerous actions.
