San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 28, 2012
Kandon Unlimited, Inc., bringing the magical and colorful world of Kathryn the Grape to life through children’s books, music, and messages of love, kindness and adventure, announced today that its first CD, Believe, Kathryn the Grape Songs For Kids of All Ages, has been named among the best in family-friendly media, products, and services by the Mom’s Choice Awards, earning a prestigious gold award of excellence. This isn’t the first time the Kathryn the Grape brand has been so honored; its first two books, Kathryn the Grape—Just Like Magic and Kathryn the Grape’s Colorful Adventure, featuring an “everyday girl” who helps children develop authentic self-love, won Mom’s Choice Awards earlier this year.
“We’re thrilled to receive this national recognition for our first CD, which combines positive and affirming lyrics with dynamic music that appeals to kids of all ages,” said Kathryn Cloward, creator of Kathryn the Grape. “I’ve been writing song lyrics for as long as I can remember and have always wanted to share my original songs with the world, so this CD is a dream come true. Its seven songs link directly to the stories, characters and messages from the Kathryn the Grape books, and it’s truly a joy to see kids singing and dancing along, having fun while strengthening their belief in themselves.”
Cloward collaborated with musician and producer Astra Kelly to create this award-winning music CD, which was produced and mixed at San Diego’s Capricorn Studios. Kelly is the lead vocalist, while Cloward sings backup vocals along with six “everyday San Diego kids” who were ecstatic to have the opportunity to sing in a recording studio and have their work enjoyed by their peers around the country.
The Kathryn the Grape CD and book series are available on Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com and KathryntheGrape.com. The next book in the award-winning series, Kathryn the Grape’s Piece of Love, will be released this fall.
