With this second Kathryn the Grape book, Kathryn Cloward and Christine Winscott combine creative talents with co-author Ginny Hornby. Inspired by the desire to help children build their self esteem and learn important lessons through dynamic stories and vibrant illustrations, Cloward, Winscott, and Hornby help children learn to SHINE and remind them that everyone is magical and colourful!" (from the cover)Review:
Kathryn the Grape books were designed to help build children's self esteem. In Kathryn the Grape's Colorful Adventure, the second Kathryn the Grape book, Kathryn is given a charm bracelet by Maggie the butterfly. Each charm is a colour in the rainbow and represents one of each of the following: Belong, Excitement, Trust, Love, Say, See, and Learn. Maggie takes Kathryn on a magical journey to show her how each of these are a part of her and how to use them to her best advantage. It is a lesson in building self-esteem that parents will welcome as they teach their own children how wonderfully special each of them truly is. Kathryn the Grape's Colorful Adventure is a welcome tool to help children realize their own self-worth, with colourful entertaining illustrations that will grasp attention and a short memorable story that children, especially girls, will relate to.
