Empowering our children now will change the future.  Providing children with the tools they need to develop authentic self-love and compassionate self-esteem is something that needs to start early, and that is exactly what Kathryn the Grape does.

Kathryn the Grape's Piece of Love empowers children to be loving and kind to themselves and others.  Kathryn was recently on the news sharing about how THIS BOOK empowers children and why it is so important to get this message in the hands and hearts of children worldwide.

We are the only ones doing what we are doing! Kathryn the Grape is the only personal development series of books and music for kids centered on a real-life inspired character.

By donating to this campaign, and you are helping us help kids worldwide!

About Kathryn the Grape

Kathryn the Grape (KTG) is a messenger of love. Our purpose is to empower children and help them develop authentic self-love and nurture a positive self-esteem. We are passionate about helping children understand that they are remarkable, magical individuals. Kathryn the Grape encourages children to love and accept themselves and others, and this message is woven in everything we do. 

Through our award winning books and music, teen-hosted radio show, and online resources, children learn important self-esteem building lessons. These lessons affect change on a core level and inspire children to ripple loving kindness and compassion into the world. 

We released our first book on 11/11/2010.  In the past two years we have been intentional about including real kids and teens in what we do!


Why Kathryn the Grape's Piece of Love?

Kathryn the Grape's Piece of Love is a dynamic and vibrant peace-building story that helps children and adults understand the incredible impact our choices have on our planet and others.  With the help of real children as characters, you will learn about:   

  • Contributing your piece to creating peace on our planet.
  • How our thoughts, words, and actions have a ripple effect.
  • Being loving, kind, and accepting of ourselves and others.
  • Removing worried thoughts to be in the flow.
  • The affirmation, "I am love."
  • Being a peace builder by rippling loving kindness everyday.

Why Create an Interactve Mobile App?

The most efficient way to get Kathryn the Grape in the hands and hearts of children worldwide is through an interactive mobile app.  Through the development of an English language application on the Android and iOS platforms (iPhone and iPad) we will be creating a more interactive experience for children to engage with this peace-building story. 

Here are some of the benefits of our new app:

  • The tactile nature of a tablet device taps into different learning modalities, allowing access for all learning styles.
  • Each page is a new adventure in exploration.
  • Not only will the app spread a good message but it will also help in the learning process by providing read-aloud and touch text features.
  • A large variety of interactive methods such as swipe, tap, and pinch gives a multi-textural element to the child's app experience.
  • You can decide to read with your child or let him/her pace themselves.
  • Varied page turning animations provide variety during the app experience.
  • Children can physically drag objects and find targets that trigger visual rewards.
  • The app will be saturated with audio that can be turned on or off.

What's the Plan For EXCEEDING Our Campaign Goal?

In the awesome event that our campaign goal is exceeded, we have a plan in place for allocating funds to help with other important projects as follows: 

  • Translate Kathryn the Grape's Piece of Love into other languages.
  • Build an interactive mobile app for Kathryn the Grape Just Like Magic (book #1)
  • Build an interactive mobile app for Kathryn the Grape's Colorful Adventure (book #2)
  • Translate the interactive mobile app for book #1 and #2 into additional languages.
