Self-Esteem resource: 'The Farmer's Water Buckets' by A.M. Marcus

Teach your children to celebrate their differences.

Being different is not easy, especially for young children. Sharing a story wherein the main characters celebrate being different is a very powerful tool for any child. This book shows a great example of looking at the bright side of things and aims to inspire children to embrace who they are with all their unique differences.

This inspiring tale tells the story of The Farmer's Water Buckets in which one of the watering buckets unfortunately breaks. From then on, the broken bucket feels sad about not living to the expectations of others and not being able to help the farmer like he used to before he got broke.
  • Will the cracked bucket manage deal with his difference?
  • Will the cracked bucket still help the farmer after being broken?
  • Can both buckets still be friends?

This book will help you teach your children the value of tolerance, cooperation and acceptance while celebrating their differences. It may help boost a child's self-esteem and realize that being different isn't a negative trait.

It reinforces the view that being different is a positive thing and encourages children to accept the fact that everyone is different.

The lesson of the book best expressed in this inspirational quote by Robert Tew.

“Do not underestimate yourself by comparing yourself with others. It’s our differences that make us unique & Beautiful.” - Robert Tew

This well-written and inspiring story will help you to teach your children an important way of thinking with regard to tolerance, acceptance and celebrating diversity.

The Farmer's Water Buckets is an entertaining read before bedtime, with the whole family, or as self-reading for older children. 
Additionally, it is a great resource for teachers and counselors to share with individual students or in a class.

With vibrant, delightful illustrations and easy-to-digest lessons, children will learn of a life that is much happier and richer–in health, family, and friendship!

A. M. Marcus graduated from the Technion Israel Institute Of Technology with B.Sc. Cum Laude in Computer Engineering.

Throughout his studies, he has been teaching and helping children with math and through his work, he has helped them to discover their inner strength and motivation to continue studying and nurturing success in life.

He loves the challenge of early education, and especially enjoys working with children with learning difficulties. He has found great satisfaction in helping them conquer their fears and overcome the challenges associated with their education.

A. M. Marcus has read hundreds of self improvement books, and been influenced heavily by them. Through self-reflection, he found that his great dream was to share that wisdom, especially with kids.

A. M. Marcus left his computer engineering career in order to pursue his dream of becoming an author of children's books. Today, he continues to write these books, with the goal of teaching kids basic skills through his stories. He believes that a good story is an excellent way to communicate ideas to children.

Each and every story is based upon some deep issue, value, or virtue that can potentially make a huge impact on the lives of both children and adults. He has a vast collection of quotes, and usually bases his stories off of quotes he personally finds inspiring.

For example, the first book he published in English on amazon was, "The Peaceful Lion And The Nagging Crow."

The story can be summed up thusly:

"Don't Take Anything Personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering."
--- Don Miguel Ruiz.
