Author Carol McCloud

Twelve years ago, Carol McCloud wrote her first children’s book, Have You Filled a Bucket Today? A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids.
Carol never would have dreamed this now best-selling, award-winning book would introduce millions of people around the world to the concept of bucket filling. In her newest book, Buckets, Dippers and Lids: Secrets to Your Happiness, bucket filling is taken a step further by introducing the idea that, in addition to an invisible bucket and dipper, everyone also has an invisible lid.

In this fun, family-friendly event, author Carol McCloud will introduce Bucket Fillers and Lids using fun songs and role plays. Immediately following, Carol will be answering all your bucketfilling questions and signing books while children participate in a craft activity.
