188th St. AMC Jamaica Estates Bucket Fillers – Doing Nice Things
Check out the children at All My Children Daycare and Nursery School at 188th Street, Jamaica Estates. They read a book called “Have You Filled a Bucket Today?” by Carol McCloud, and all the children became “Bucket Fillers” – saying and doing nice things for others. They learned that by acting in this manner, they could fill other people’s buckets while filling their own buckets at the same time.
