Treasure Box of Tools
Hello and welcome! My name is Kathryn Cloward, a.k.a. “Kathryn the Grape.” I’m a storyteller who shares messages of love. I’m purposeful about simplifying life lessons I've learned into stories and songs that provide a treasure box filled with positive and affirming tools of love for children and adults to use together.
Many adults are seeking youth-focused resources for children that include positive social and emotional learning tools and growth mindset principles. That is exactly what Kathryn the Grape provides. When I started creating this series 11 year ago, I was inspired by a desire to help my son and children everywhere have self-help style self-development tools I didn't have as a child. Perhaps you have a similar desire. I get it. Kathryn the Grape is here to help.

Additionally, each book has been recreated in a black and white Coloring Book version with illustrations outlined so children can interact with each story more as they add color to the pages.
