Synopsis: Captain Kangaroo has brightened the mornings of three generations of children with his friends Grandfather Clock, Mr. Green Jeans, Mr. Moose, Bunny Rabbit, Dancing Bear, and Tom Terrific. With his soft voice and reassuring manner, the Captain has given children a warm sense of security, as well as taught them about the wonders of the animal world and introduced them to favorite books.
Now, Bob Keeshan, the creator of America?s favorite grandfather, offers his personal advice to help parents raise caring, responsible children. His winning approach is based on a simple understanding of love and respect?both by the adult and the child. Among the topics discussed are the ever-changing roles of the family and the importance of enhancing self-esteem in an often difficult world.
Growing Up Happy presents a charming mix of nostalgia, heartwarming anecdotes, and valuable insights on raising healthy, happy children.
From Publishers Weekly:
To the generation that knew him first as TV's Captain Kangaroo, Keeshan speaks with the authority of a public performer who has successfully entertained youngsters for more than a third of a century. As he chronicles events in his personal and professional lives, the author, now a grandfather, discusses elements that comprise a well-adjusted childhood and offers time-tested suggestions for parents that are relevant to today's family lifestyles. Keeshan, who has served his community as a school board member and whose television character is an icon in children's programming, is conversant with the professional literature of early childhood and is also an experienced practitioner. With quiet humor and easy confidence, he reassures his former child viewers that they can carry on the heritage of Captain Kangaroo and his worthy entourage with their own children.
