Growing Up Happy

Bob Keeshan, Author, Robert Keeshan, Author Doubleday Books $17.95 (230p) ISBN 978-0-385-24909-6
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.
