,,This is my simple religion.There is no need for temples;no need for complicated philosophy.Our brain,our heart is our temple;the philosophy is kindness.”
The Book That Transforms Anti-Bullying into
True Bucketfilling Stories:
Legacies of Love
Stacey A. Lundgren
A popular character education professional transforms ANTI-BULLYING into PRO-KINDNESS and PRO-EMPATHY with these ten powerful, true stories. Each tells of ordinary people who leave an indelible, positive imprint on humanity by making a simple choice. Story characters choose to react with selflessness rather than selfishness, with gentleness rather than violence, with love and kindness rather than hate or anger. Any of us can choose to be a bucket filler, a person who treats others with kindness, or a bucket dipper, a person who treats others carelessly. Reading level is age 9 to adult. Share these unforgettable stories with children you love and easily teach the power of compassion, forgiveness, and the miracles that can be created by expressing love. For use in classrooms and families, each story ends with “Let’s Talk About It”, discussion questions that will facilitate talks about feelings and choices.
