Kandon Unlimited Inc., the parent company of Kathryn the Grape Company and Kandon Publishing, announced Thursday that the Kathryn the Grape series—three books and a music CD—has earned 2014 Family Choice Awards. This significant honor, handed out annually since 1995, recognizes the best in children’s and parenting products.
The award presented to Kathryn the Grape Just Like Magic, Kathryn the Grape’s Colorful Adventure, Kathryn the Grape’s Piece of Love, and Believe—Kathryn the Grape Songs for Kids of All Ages serves as a recommendation to families. Candace Evans, Family Choice Awards chairperson, noted that the awards “convey our gratitude and recognition for producing extraordinary products that make a positive difference in the lives of our families.”
Kathryn Cloward, creator of the Kathryn the Grape series and La Mesa resident, is thrilled to receive this stamp of approval from one of the most coveted, family-friendly consumer awards programs in the nation.
“I’m delighted that the entire Kathryn the Grape series was honored and I’m thrilled about being associated with the Family Choice label, which reflects that our brand resonates with families,” Cloward said. “My intention has always been to share engaging books and music that have universal appeal, and these awards affirm that we’re hitting the mark.”
Cloward is working on the fourth book in the Kathryn the Grape series as well as another music-CD that will accompany it. She’s also overseeing the production of soft-cover versions of the first three books—which will facilitate easier worldwide distribution—in preparation for their translation into at least three other languages by the end of the year.
