"The work lays out three rules for readers--children as well as adults--to find happiness in their lives. All three revolve around the author's concept of people having buckets they can either fill for themselves or others . . .Opportunities to fill buckets abound. As McCloud points out, every instance of simple kindness helps to fill buckets. . . An inviting guide for children (and their parents) to cultivating happiness and helping others." - KirkusReviews Through the simple concept of an invisible, mental, and emotional bucket, GrowingUp with a Bucket Full of Happiness gives a very real and profound understanding of why people act as they do. This book teaches the "bucketfilling" language by examining a number of difficult subjects with colorfully-illustrated chapters, thought-provoking questions, and relevant real-life situations. Readers of all ages will learn and experience, through daily practice, the value of kindness, understanding, resiliency, and courage in a world that isn't always kind.
