Reading books with kids is such a good way to bring life lessons to the forefront without being too "in their face." I love this list of books, especially "Bucket Filling Fairy" by our very own Ann Marie Gardinier Halstead ! One of my all-time fave books to cultivate kindness and empathy!

Thank you, Elisa A. Schmitz 30Seconds ! How kind of you. I hope my book helps lots of kids to fill others' buckets (and fill their own at the same time!). We could use more love, empathy, and kindness in the world!

You are so right, Ann Marie Gardinier Halstead . Needed now more than ever. Thank you for all you do and share!
