In this sensitive self-esteem program, Baxter, a live-action puppet, learns the secrets of personal success through the power of a strong self-image. Baxter despondently runs away from home. As he mopes out of the yard, he is stopped by Grandpaw, his wise patriarch, whose story about learning to say “no” to bad things, being your own best friend, and believing you are special motivates the young pooch to turn his life around.
Part of the Sooper Puppy series, featuring Baxter, a charming little dog that children find lovable and laughable. Baxter looks at the world the same way a young child does, with wonder, enthusiasm, some apprehension — and just a little mischievousness. He’s the trusted friend your students or your children need to introduce them to some of life’s dangers without getting them upset or afraid.
Throughout his award-winning adventures, Baxter and his friends and family share important life lessons that are easy for children to understand and remember. Produced by J. Gary Mitchell. An MTI release.
