Children's Book Review and Giveaway: Kathryn the Grape (Ends 3/12) CLOSED

Friday, February 25, 2011 Posted by Dina N


Book Description
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!

My Review
Kathryn the Grape is a beautifully illustrated hardcover picture book. Kathryn is a little girl who believes in magic. Thanks to a little help from her magical butterfly friend, Kathryn tackles some serious kid-sized challenges. She makes friends at a new school, chases away the monster who lives under her bed, helps a boy who needs a friend, and signs up to try something new: play softball. Her magical wand buzzes when something is not right, and the magic only works for good things. And even though Kathryn believes we are all magical, she is keeping her magic wand for now.

My daughter loved Kathryn the Grape and its magical world. As a parent, I can appreciate the final message of the book: your magic is always inside of you. And if a little magic helps a child find strength and self-confidence, so be it.
