More About the Author

Check out my newest book WIGGLE YOUR TOES! A Book to pull,fluff, and wiggle!

I have always been interested in folk art from around the world, Indian miniatures, Mexican ceramics, fabrics, Chagall, Matisse, children's art, and primitive painting, and I love to paint and experiment with pattern, texture, collage and color. The careers I've had--as a costume designer, a quilt maker, a fabric artist, and a graphic designer--have taken all these interests into account. Looking back, I can see that these passions and career choices have played a large part in influencing me to become a children's book author and illustrator.

But most importantly, it was after my husband and I adopted our daughter from Guatemala that I was inspired to do a children's book for her. My first book, Over the Moon, was the story of that magical experience of welcoming our daughter Lena into our lives. I painted, I drew, I collaged, and I wrote, and after working very hard... a beautiful book was born! Twenty-two books later, my daughter--now fourteen years old--still is an inspiration for me.

I am fascinated by babies and little kids. The simplest words and gestures can make them laugh. Sometimes standing in line at the supermarket and watching kids in grocery carts, my best ideas are born.

I am fascinated by people from all over the world and what they look like and how they live and the differences that make us all unique.

When an idea pops into my head I ask these questions:
Will a child want to read this book?
Will a parent want to read this book with their child?
Will this book make a parent and child feel something?
Is there something visual here that will hold a child's interest?
Will a child see something in a different way after reading this book?
If the answer is yes, then I know I'm on the right track.

I am very lucky to get to do what I do. Everyday I go into my studio and have fun. Don't get me wrong, some days are very frustrating. Sometimes the colors are all wrong and the words don't sound right. But after I work at it for a while...and try to do it a different way...and think...and change the words or colors...and try some more...suddenly, there it is--a great page of writing, or a great illustration. And nothing is more satisfying than that.

My husband is from Colombia, so I'm now totally bilingual and teaching our 11 mth old baby both languages simultaneously. Our son's caregiver is from Venezuela and absolutely adores this book in Spanish and shares it with him frequently. He squeals with delight when reading either language. I will be buying more books from this author. The book is a must have...so very cute.

El libro enseña algunas partes del cuerpo mediante levantar solapas, como por ejemplo se levanta una solapa de un gato y se descubre que atrás estaban los pies de un bebé, y así sucesivamente. Los dibujos me parecen muy alegres y adecuados para niños de 9 a 24 meses.

I like how the questions are simple yet the answers interesting. Where is the baby's ____ to answer with locating it in the picture somewhere - under this, over this, etc. It makes it fun for your little one with being able to interact with the picture (like lifting the shirt or looking behind the bubbles). The cardboard book is sturdy, also.

I thought it was a little over done to put "ito" after EVERY SINGLE part of the body. I understand the diminutive is commonly used, but not THIS much. This was over-kill. of course it can be easily rectified by just taking out the "ito" when you read it to your kiddo though.

We have this book in English and my daughter loves it. Since our native language is Spanish, we decided to buy this version as well, but I was disappointed with the translation. Every noun is written using diminutives (ojitos, piececitos, boquita...)not a good idea if the whole point of the book is to teach the body parts names to a Baby. But what I found outrageous is that they even use a word for "hands" that means something else in Spanish: "manitas". When you translate a book to Spanish you should consider that you are doing it for all Latin America, Central America, North America and Spain.
In my opinion, this nice book was completely diminished by a poor translation.

It's really hard to find board books in the original Spanish, which means the majority of books available are translations that don't have the same rhyme/meter/ease of the original. Our version of this books reads "piececitos" for "feet" which is excessively awkward (less awkward would be "piecitos") and, according to some, incorrect. We're raising our son to be bilingual and since he gets English at school we try to exclusively speak Spanish in the home. It's hard to find culturally/linguistically accurate books in Spanish for him that aren't 1) bilingual and/or 2) sloppily translated. Bummer.

El libro es simple, pero perfecto para niños pequeños. Mi hijo lo adora. El hecho de que puede ser un poco "interactivo" lo hace más interesante. El lenguaje es sencillo y claro. Muy recomendable para los pequeñines.

Una historia clásica para los pequesitos. Manteniendo los captivados con los colores vividos de las imágenes y las sorpresas escondidas. Una historia para compartir en familia o en cual quier momento.

Muy fácil de limpiar con una toalla umeda lijera mente ya que el libro esta laminado pero no por completo.
