A Message from Author Carol McCloud
As an educator, author, and children’s advocate, I am honored to have penned the first book to teach children that they have the power to fill invisible buckets with happiness. I never envisioned a simple picture book would start a global phenomenon.
I am proud of what our small team of presenters, illustrators, co-authors, publishers, and distributors accomplished from 2006 to 2022.
- Published ten books (ages birth through middle school)
- Sold three million copies in multiple formats and languages
- Earned 150 awards and thousands of 5-star reviews
- Presented to 3,000 audiences worldwide
- Inspired thousands to become bucket fillers
- Published hundreds of complimentary newsletters and bucket lessons
In 2022, I retired from the business and teamed up with Maria Dismondy, founder and owner of Cardinal Rule Press www.cardinalrulepress.com. The Cardinal Rule, of course, is kindness. Maria and her team are busy spreading the bucketfilling message through our books and school presentations, allowing me time to write. Books Eleven, Twelve, and Thirteen are underway!
THE BUCKETFILLING RIPPLE EFFECT
I am humbled that thousands of schools worldwide continue to use Bucket Filler books as their primary character development program. Thank you, educators. A generation of adults, first introduced to our books in primary school, continue to enjoy its positive, life-changing impact.
