Have You Filled a Bucket Today? A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids - Carol McCloud

This book talks about filling buckets. Although they may not be there physically, you can still fill someones invisible bucket with kind words. I would use this books to talk about kindness and have the students decorate their own bucket so that their classmates can write kind notes or identify good things that are happening around the classroom.

The Rainbow Fish - Marcus Pfister,J. Alison James

The Rainbow Fish is very beautiful and wants to keep all of his scales to himself, but after declining over and over again to share his scales he comes to the realization that his scales should be shared with all his friends so everyone can experience the beauty. This book is a great way to start a discussion about sharing in the classroom and could be used to talk about and identify character traits.

Caring for the Caregiver - Cheri Swalwell

Caring for the Caregiver by Cheri Swalwell Book starts out with dedication page and other works by the author. I've read many of her books and have enjoyed them. Love the straight forward words of encouragement as you go through the bad times. We went through similar situation with my husband who had a heart attack. I'd go with him to the doctors and hand them the blood work results and write everything down in my 3 folders of information. Still go with him just to be sure we are on the right track. Like endings and tips at end of each section. So much of what we went through is described in detail here with solutions and suggestions. Love the parts about taking care of yourself or you'd not be able to take care of them or the children. Love this book the best because it spoke to me of how I take care of my spouse daily and when he's ill. We were just raised to do that and chip in where needed. When I heard the title I thought it would be about taking for an aging adult, glad I was wrong as we go through illnesses together throughout our lives. Scriptures are quoted when they are relevant to the subjects being discussed. Like explanations of the different types of fasting and what is involved. Love bible verses that are quoted at the end to help offer more encouragement. Author bio and contact information is provided.

Lexile Level: 180L

 

This is a book about and elephant and a pig. The elephant has an ice cream cone. He is debating whether or not to share it with his friend the pig. He ends up letting the ice cream melt. But his pig friend comes with another to give to him. I would use this book to talk to my students about sharing. I would tell them to always keep your friends in mind.
