Kathryn the Grape® Music Earns 2015 Family Choice Award
Music CD Honored for Excellence in Family-Friendly Media
SAN DIEGO, May 24, 2015—Kandon Unlimited Inc., the parent company of the Kathryn the Grape children’s series and Kandon Publishing, announced today that the Believe— Kathryn the Grape Songs for Kids of All Ages music CD has earned the 2015 Family Choice Award. This significant honor, handed out annually since 1995, recognizes the best in children’s and parenting products.
Kathryn Cloward, creator of Kathryn the Grape, is excited to receive this unexpected award from one of the most prestigious family-friendly consumer awards programs in the nation. The award committee deemed the Kathryn the Grape CD to be among the very best of the best in children’s products.
“Kathryn the Grape as an entire series earned the 2014 Family Choice Award, so receiving this additional award was a complete surprise. I am incredibly grateful,” Cloward said. “Creating a children’s brand from scratch takes a lot of hard work and perseverance. Kathryn the Grape is competing in a marketplace dominated by Disney. Knowing that parents and children are enjoying the intentional messages being shared in my series is fuel to keep going.”
Believe— Kathryn the Grape Songs for Kids of All Ages, a seven-song music CD written by Cloward and Astra Kelly, has also earned the gold Mom’s Choice Award. Each song on the CD lyrically links to the positive messages Cloward shares in her award-winning book series.
Cloward is currently writing the final books in the seven-book Kathryn the Grape Affirmation Series (illustrated by Molly Alice Hoy and four books co-written with Samantha Prince). She will be going back into the recording studio this summer to record the second Kathryn the Grape music CD, an 11-song collection of positive and affirming songs co-written with Lori Wilson that also share lyrical messages that link to the book series. Cloward and Wilson are becoming popular with San Diego families, as they are sharing their vocal and musical talents at events all around the county through the Kathryn the Grape Music Show. Cloward will be debuting two music albums in June 2015, Free to Fly and A Soft Place to Fall, with 22 new songs about her personal journey of transformation and unconditional love.
