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.

The illustrations are very cute, and the other books in this series are equally fun.

I originally purchased this book as a gift, thinking it was too "babyish" for my 2 1/2 yr. old. But he saw it and loved it! The words are so simple to read and understand that it has become a great learning tool as he begins to focus on the letters and sounds of words. Great pictures and great ideas. It's really helped him understand how, when and why to say things like "excuse me or thank you."

This is one of two board books by Karen Zatz we bought for our 12 month old baby. The book is very easy to read with short questions like "You burped, what do you say"? When you open the flap there is a bright, fun picture & the words "Excuse Me" written inside. My child loves to be read to & responded well to this book at a young age.

our 20 month old daughter LOVES the Karen Katz "lift the flap" books, and this one was no exception, EXCEPT that this book is physically cheaper quality and less robust - after only about 2 weeks, this one was pretty much destroyed. It's much less robust than "where's baby's mommy" and "where's baby's bellybutton", our other two Karen Katz books.

This is a book in the adorable Karen Katz- style, but I have to agree with other reviewers who admonished that this book is legitimizing bad behavior. It has the children say "no, thank you" to healthy food and "yes, please" to unhealthy sweets. Though I see, that on part of the author it may be difficult to decide whether to go with the unfortunate reality of things or state an example and advocate the right thing to do - apparently I would have preferred the author to have chosen the latter.

I bought this book with very low expectations. My kids have asked to read it a zillion times already. They find great humor in some of the pages, but the point of using your manners is certainly getting across.

My 18 month old loves to read this book with me, and also reads it by herself. She knows the answers to all but one question, and loves to answer the questions even without the book. She requests this book at every bedtime, and several times throughout the day.

After reading this book several times everyday, I have it completely memorized from front to back. But my 3 year old loves this book, and has for a long time.

She especially loves lifting up the flaps, and I like that it's a fun, lighthearted book that includes good manners without being stiff or sounding instructional.
