Kathryn The Grape Children's Book Review & Giveaway

About The Book

POOF! Just Like Magic! That’s how easy it is to fall in love with Kathryn the Grape and her magical butterfly friend, Maggie! These inspiring characters teach that each of us has our own magic within. As your children read along, they will discover their own inner strength and fearlessness, learn about making new friends, and learn the importance of helping others. Kathryn the Grape takes the reader on a journey of discovery and spreads the message that everyone is magical! [40 page 10" x 8" hardcover picture book, ages 3-8]

About The Author

As the original Kathryn the Grape, Kathryn Cloward embraced the childhood nickname given to her by her childhood softball coach, drew on her own life experiences, and created this children’s book series that is so close to her heart.

Co-Author
Jody Duhamel is a passionate, creative contributor in the Kathryn the Grape series. Duhamel is inspired by her family and her desire to teach children of all ages that they should not allow others to define them.

 
My Thoughts


The day we received Kathryn the Grape, Josiah knew exactly what he wanted to read at bedtime. He was immediately drawn to the bright purples and pinks. Once we started reading the book, Josiah was in heaven with all of the illustrations and, of course magic!

Kathryn faces real-life challenges that definitely hit home for other children- monsters under the bed, trying out for a team, starting school, etc. Josiah actually had a nightmare the other night about a monster in his brother's closet and he will be starting preschool this fall so, this book will be helpful through all of these situations and worries. With some help from Maggie, Kathryn's magical butterfly and a magic wand, "POOF! Just Like Magic" Kathryn can face her problems head on!

It's a wonderful story and encourages children to meet their own challenges without fear. Everyone needs a little magic in their lives, too. I was reminded of The Little Princess and the quote,"All little girls are princesses"! All children are magical and special in their own ways and sometimes they just need to be reminded. Children from ages 3-8 will definitely enjoy this book.

My son hasn't faced any challenges yet. Whatever future challenges he may encounter, I just hope to be as loving and supportive for him as possible

my grandson is 2 1/2 but he has a severe allergy to peanuts so that will be a challenge for all of us to face/work with.
