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 bucketfilling? Filled with delightful illustrations along with bucketfilling and bucketdipping facts, Halle and Tiger with their Bucketfilling Family will make an excellent addition to any library.
