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.

Customer Reviews

I'm not impressed with the book at all and disappointed that the title is so misleading.
Steven P. Hutchinson
Naively, I thought "No Biting" was about biting, just as I thought "No Hitting" was about hitting.
Mac
The book is a perfect introduction to what's acceptable behavior for children of his age range.

Most of the children's books that I've come across that address appropriate behavior are geared towards pre-schoolers or older toddlers. When looking for a book for my 16 month old, I was very excited to come across this one.
The book is a perfect introduction to what's acceptable behavior for children of his age range. Great things about this book include:
-It covers all the behaviors we needed to address and then some. It includes biting, hitting, pushing, kicking, and spitting.
-For each inappropriate behavior, there is an alternative appropriate behavior shown in a lift-the-flap format. For example, one page says, "No hitting Mommy. Then asks "What can you hit?", and under the flap reads "A drum!", with a girl enthusiasticly doing just that.
-It has simple colorful illustrations that capture my son's attention, and it does not include too much text to distract him.
-It ends with a little persuasion by asking, "Can you remember?", and under the flap showing a little girl with her hands in the air saying, "Yes I can!"
The first time I read this book to my son he was very interested, and I could see the gears turning in his little head. (It seems the content hit home with my little pusher/kicker/biter!) After reading it only a few times, his behavior seems to have improved.
I would highly recommend this book to all parents of young toddlers.

One day I got that dreaded phone call from my daughter's day care. She'd bitten another child. It happened again the next day. We tried time-outs, discussions, and lavishing attention on the victim. We thought the biting had stopped, but a month later, she did it again--hard enough to break the skin! We did not know what we could do to make her stop biting, until we found this book. It is ideally suited to a toddler (1-3 years old). It is short and simple so toddlers understand it. The illustrations are bright and colorful to hold a toddler's attention. Also, the book offer kids positive suggestions. (No biting our friends, but we can bite apples!) Overall, our toddler loves it, and she hasn't bitten anyone lately, so the message must be getting through.

Format: Hardcover
I bought this book because my toddler's friends were starting to bite and hit and I thought I would teach mine before she started to do it as well. Instead of teaching her it's wrong to bite, hit, kick, push, etc. it taught her to do it. She never grasbed the idea of the second page that shows you what you can do instead. Ever since we read it the first time she now says, "Hit Friends!" "Hit Mommy" "Kick Dogs". I was reading in a childhood development book later that we shouldn't teach by saying, No or Don't do this. Instead we should teach by saying what we want them to do. When you give them the idea of we don't do something, they don't understand and they now have the idea that they can hit friends or kick dogs.

I'd recommend a book that says how toddlers should act like, we are gentle with animals. We hug our friends. Etc.

I had to hide this book.

We bought this book for my daughter when she started biting other kids at her daycare (around 17 months old). It was such a hit with her, I also bought a few more copies for the daycare. Besides biting, it also addresses all the other negative behaviors we don't want our children engaging in. My daughter loves to lift the flaps and yell out the answers. When she does slip with one of the behaviors, I gently say, "No hitting. What can you hit?" She knows the answer right away and knows to apologize. At 2 years old, the book is still a hit and one we continue to ready daily. Fidning fun interactive books that teach a good message can be hard. This one makes it very easy for the parent!

I GOT THIS BOOK AS PART OF A READING PROGRAM I ENROLLED MY DAUGHTER IN THROUGH OUR LOCAL LIBRARY. SHE LOVES IT!!! I THINK IT IS A WONDERFUL BOOK!!! SOME OF THE THINGS DO NOT APPLY TO HER, BUT SHE UNDERSTANDS THAT NO HITTING MOMMY ALSO MEANS NO HITTING DADDY. NO HITTING OR NO BITTING MEANS NO FOR EVERYONE!!!!! I WAS ALSO THRILLED WHEN THE BOOK "EXCUSE ME" BY THE SAME AUTHOR SHOWED UP IN THE MAIL THE FOLLOWING MONTH.

I got this book for my son who has trouble with biting, especially his older sister. I don't read the book word for word, but be sure to use words that apply to the situation at hand, using the pictures as visual aids. For example, I'll read "We don't bite people, we don't bite sisters or friends" instead of the printed, "No biting friends".

I think it works well -- I've caught my son "reading" the book to himself. And the biting has almost disappeared.

I bought this book for my son when he began biting when he was one. He is now two and he still loves it. He can recite the book to me and even "reads" it to himself. The flap pages are fun and different from the other books he has and it seems to be age appropriate in that it is not so complicated to lose his attention. We read the book together to learn improper behaviors and when he was bit by his cousin afew weeeks ago, he said "NO biting", just like the book taught him. I would recomend this book to parents trying to replace incorrect behaviors with the appropriate behavior. (Bite apples, not your friends). I love this book and think it is a great addition to my son's library.
