)-- Halle has her job cut out for her; she has to teach the new cat, Tiger, all about bucket filling. But Tiger keeps making mistakes; sleeping in Halle's bed, jumping up on the counter, and swiping something that doesn't belong to him. With the help and understanding of the whole family, will Halle be able to teach Tiger about bucket filling? Filled with delightful illustrations along with bucket filling and bucket dipping facts, Halle and Tiger with their Bucketfilling Family will make an excellent addition to any library.
Bucketfilling is about being positive and treating people kindly. Bucketdipping is the opposite. Nuggets of truth, teaching points are along the bottom of each page, while the top has the story line with sweet illustrations.
