More About the Author

Carol McCloud, a.k.a. the "Bucket Lady", has captivated all ages and encouraged them to become daily bucket fillers since her first book, Have You Filled a Bucket Today? A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids, was published in 2006.

A graduate of Oakland University's School of Education and Human Services, Carol has spent 20 years in education as a teacher, counselor, youth mentor, and early education director. As Adjunct Professor for the Florida Keys Community College in the 1990's, Carol taught early childhood development classes and served as president of the local NAEYC affiliate.

Carol is an award-winning author, Talent Smart® Emotional Intelligence Certified Trainer, and member of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). She delights in presenting the bucketfilling message to audiences of all sizes and ages. Her passion for bucket filling, energetic style, and creative storytelling is true to her goal: to motivate each person to make a choice to be a bucket filler in their daily walk.

Carol lives with her husband, Jack, in Venice, Florida and spends summers in Brighton, Michigan.

I'm an elementary school counselor and I have used the bucket filling books with students for years. They are truly awesome and are really uplifting to students. I was so excited to see Carol McCloud's new book - Growing Up With A Bucket Full of Happiness. It is everything I hoped it would be! I also love that it is geared towards the older students - 3rd grade and up. It is a chapter book and written perfectly with wonderful illustrations for the reader to look at. This is not a long book - it's just right. Carol introduces new concepts to students like:

*Group Bucket Filling
*How To Avoid Dipping
*Accidental Dipping
*Thoughtless Dipping
*Selective Dipping
*Group Dipping
*Dipping on Television
*Long-Handled Dipping
*Use Your Lid
*Use Your Lid for Others
*Advanced Bucket Fillers
*When A Lid Doesn't Work

All of this new language is exactly what the older kids need. I highly recommend teachers, parents, school librarians, and school counselors to buy this INVALUABLE resource.

Even if you are already a grownup, this book can help "clarify your thinking." Just as Carol McCloud's earlier books give children a vocabulary to describe experiences and their feelings, "Growing Up" puts into concrete words many of the things we adults wish someone had explained to us long before we learned them the hard way. Yet this book is not preachy. It is clear and matter of fact, yet filled with warmth, and it gives readers tools to incorporate the practice of happiness into their daily lives.

I'm a k-5 PE teacher who also has the Health curriculum, my school has adopted the BUCKET FILLING program by Tim Roth and it's working wonderfully to create a cohesive, empathetic culture. All of the books are great but this one rocks!!

Just sent this to staff and friends in education...

Dave and I are reading it to 1-5th , we are on pg 25 and its inspired a huge language change for myself when dealing with conflicts and tons of conversations with not only our students but Dave and I and my family and friends this one is reverberating like and bassoon!!!

I bought this book for my kids and they grasped the idea of bucket filling immediately. I have read a lot of books on happiness for adults, but none of them drove home the point like this one. I highly recommend this book for children and adults.

Have you filled someone's bucket today or at least helped fill it? I love this concept, and it's very simple for young children to internalize. Check out all the Fill the Bucket resources and find what's best for you.
