Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading . Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!
* Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists!
If I type fast, I may still get this posted on Tuesday.
A couple of weeks ago, my son came home from school raving about a story that the school guidance counselor had read to his class. He even referenced it later when we were reading bedtime stories and continued to talk about the concept days later.
I got the name of the book from her and immediately ordered it for him – it arrived today and he was excited to see it (this from a kid who thinks all surprises should be toys!). We read it together and he stopped me several times to explain more about it.
So, what is this miraculous book that has helped us break the barrier of perspective-taking? It’s called Have You Filled a Bucket Today? , written by Carol McCloud and illustrated by David Messing. There are several other related titles, but I got this one since it is the version used in his class.
Here are a couple of sentences from the book:
A bucket filler is a loving, caring person who says or does nice things that make others feel special.
But guess what . . . when you fill someone’s bucket, you fill your own bucket too!
I guess this turned into more of a review than a teaser, but that’s okay! For more teasers or to submit your own, visit Should Be Reading .
