Kathryn the Grape- Just Like Magic! Book Review

I had the opportunity to review Kathryn the Grape-Just Like Magic! This wonderful book was written by Kathryn Cloward and Jody Duhamal. We have had this book for a couple weeks and this has become a favorite of my daughter Olivia's.

This is a story about a little girl, Kathryn, who has a magic butterfly named Maggie, who has a magic wand and she gives Kathryn one also. Maggie teaches Kathryn to pay attention to how she is supposed to  use and share her magic with others. Kathryn uses the wand at night to scare away monsters from under her bed, she uses it when she is scared or nervous and even uses it to help a friend. The wand can not be used for not so good things as it will not work.
Kathryn uses the wand when she decides to play on the softball team. It helps her overcome her fear and play softball terrific.
In the end Kathryn discovers that the magic is really inside of her and that everyone can be magical.

This is a cute book that I believe all kids will love.  It has a wonderful message that everyone is special and with a message like that it invites a wonderful conversation with your child.

I received a copy of Kathryn the Grape-Just Like Magic! for review. I did not receive any monetary compensation and the opinions are 100% my own.
