Don’t you just love finding fun new books to read to your children? We go to the library at least twice a month and check out the latest and greatest, as well as older books that withstand the test of time (well, at least the stories do…some of the actual books at the library do need to be replaced!).
Anyway, today I’m bringing you a delightful story about magic, specifically the magic that is within every person (your inner strength!). Kathryn the Grape: Just Like Magicrecently hit the scene, and it is such a great story! The pictures of this 40 page book are bright and beautiful, which makes it all the more fun to read. It tells the story of a girl named Kathryn and her magical butterfly friend, Maggie. They have lots of adventures together, and learn about being strong, helpful and fearless when it comes to tough things like making new friends.
One of my very favorite things about this book is the great deal of thought that went into it. The website for this book has an awesome section that tells you all about the symbolism behind each character, which helps the parent tease all all the wonderful things the book has to teach to your child!
I also like that $1 from each book that is sold goes to the Kathryn the Grape Foundation, which supports various nonprofits dedicated to education, empowerment and sustainability!
I have a feeling that Kathryn the Grape is going to be having many more adventures in books that will be coming out later. I can’t wait to see what awaits her, next!
