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.

We bought this book for our 11 month old twins and they love it.

This baby eats at a highchair, takes a bath and gets dried off with a 'real towel', gets to swing, read a story, and of course gets tuck into bed.
KCinKansas
It's a well-made book with great colors, and each page has something a baby actually does.

"Baby's Day Out" is a soft cloth book, where the baby is put in and out of everyday activities. My granddaughter is 2 and loves this book.
What is baby doing now, we ask, she will immediately tell us and put baby in that picture. Bath, eating, sleeping, she loves this book.
She likes to take care of baby "all day". The book itself is very well made and will last through the spills and tramples of being loved.

One side of the baby toy shows a sleeping baby, the other side shows an awake baby. So cute for my toddler to play with. She loves the book.

This book is very cute, and can be used to show a baby some typical activities in his life. It is fun to see them act some of the activities out, such as "dry" baby after a bath. It can also be fun for an older sibling to read to baby. I machine washed and dried with no problem.

This book is as adorable as Karen Katz's other books and a very neat concept, but not something a baby or young toddler can really enjoy on their own. The baby pictured on the front, in the wagon, is attached to a ribbon and you remove her from the wagon to read the book. You place her in the highchair, towel for bath, under blankie for bed, etc. An adorable idea, but neither my 2 1/2 year old nor my 9 month old think it's much fun. They certainly cannot manipulate it on their own, so then there are virtually empty pages to look at. Sort of a disappointment. Perhaps good for a first child or for a baby with a preschool or school-aged sibling to help "read" it.

The baby is attached to the cloth spine by a ribbon, allowing you to move the baby in and out of each place he or she may sit or do each day; i.e. buggy, bath, high chair, bed. Also the cloth book is easy to chew and machine washable. We have had hours of fun with Baby's Day.

Our 15-month old really enjoys Karen Katz's lift-the flap books, so I thought I would try Baby's Day. Our baby enjoys playing with the little baby and putting her into the little scenes throughout the book. She hugs and kisses the little stuffed baby. It's adorable. It's a sweet little book, and a nice interactive reading experience for baby.
