Kathryn the Grape - Just Like Magic {Children's Book Review & Giveaway}


My 5 year old has been doing really well learning to read this year! I am so proud of her!! We are always looking for great new books to explore together! I was very excited for the chance to review Kathryn the Grape-Just Like Magic! By Kathryn Cloward and Jody Duhamel.  It is illustrated beautifully by Christine Winscott! This fun story is great for bedtime and helps you use your imagination!


Product 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!"

This fun book was an instant hit with my girls! They wanted to read it as soon as it came and again at bedtime!  They really like magic so this was a great story for them!  The book has bright colors and is easy to read aloud!  The book has 40 pages but each page only has a few sentences! That gives you plenty of quality reading time without being TOO lengthy!  I love how it also gives little lessons, like considering right and wrong and acting accordingly! 

Something really cool about this story is that $1 of from every book sold on KathryntheGrape.com is directed to the Kathryn the Grape Foundation. They partner with non-profit agencies focused on  supporting education, empowerment and sustainability.  The Kathryn the Grape Foundation exists to share the magic by giving back and partnering with local, national and global organizations aimed at supporting education, empowerment and sustainability.
