One Book, One Community Wisconsin

One Book One Community Wisconsin

It's not too late to join us!  We are in full swing with our "One Book One Community Wisconsin" bucket filling year! You can still host your "One Book One Community" https://sites.google.com/site/obocwisconsin/ event.  A good explanation of what the "One Book One Community" concept can be found at  http://www.randomhouse.biz/libraries/pdfs/onebook10.pdf  The theme we are using are those that support the bucket filling concept.  There are several books with that theme that can be found on Amazon here:  http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_c_0_11?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=bucket+filler&sprefix=bucket+fill%2Caps%2C259 


The one we are suggesting is "Have You Filled A Bucket Today"  by Carol McCloud ( http://www.bucketfillers101.com/index.php )  From the jacket cover of the book "Through sweet, simple prose and vivid illustrations, this heartwarming book encourages positive behavior as children see how very easy and rewarding it is to express kindness, appreciation, and love on a daily basis."  I also like using puppets or manipulatives with my stories. Mimi Boyd from Mimi's Motif's   (http://www.mimismotifs.com/) has exclusively developed a great manipulative that can be used with any of the bucket books.  It consists of a clear bucket with bright, colorful shapes that can represent the various good things people can do to fill buckets. It can easily be manipulated with any of her puppets or puppets you may already have.  It's a great way to visualize the bucket filling concept.  I have been using their prototype so it isn't featured on her website YET but will be very soon.  Check her website often!  Her Dewey Puppet is awesome too!
