Bucket filler books are designed to help teach children how to express benevolence and love and to help pre-teens live happier, more fulfilled lives. The book "Have you Filled a Bucket Today?" is designed to teach children how to express kindness, appreciation and love and how to interact appropriately with their peers. It teaches this through age-appropriate language, explaining that their words affect others and themselves and that this behavior can be "bucket filling" and "dipping".
"Growing Up with a Bucket Full of Happiness" is a book written for slightly older children. This book expands upon the metaphor by explaining how to put a lid on the bucket. This book is for children ages 9-14.

It has thirty achievable ideas on how to fill buckets, eight questions to ask yourself every day for 30 days as you practice the three rules for a happier life, and eight questions to ask yourself every day for thirty days as you practice the three rules of a happier life.
