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.

Nice teaching tool for young children.

The title of the book, "No Hitting" is also a little misleading.

This book in no way helped my child not to hit.

I agree with the reviewer that found it odd that one of the examples in the book suggested that instead of sticking out your tongue you should lick an ice cream cone. ?? The examples were a little strange and the book isn't completely focused on hitting.

A friend of mine owns another book on hitting called

Hands Are Not for Hitting by Martine Agassi Ph.D. I recommend that book as a little more on target for those focused on correcting a hitting issue.

I ordered this book to reinforce with my 2 year old why hitting is wrong. My son doesn't hit alot, but at age 2, he gets angry and doesn't know how to express his feelings. I was hoping that a picture book might help him to identify his emotions and maybe identify some empathy for the person on the receiving end of the hitting.

While my son likes when we read read this book, and can easily recite from memory the mantra "that's not ok", he doesn't really make the connection to his own angry feelings and what to do with them.

The title of the book, "No Hitting" is also a little misleading. Only the first page actually addresses hitting; the rest of the book addresses other inappropriate behaviors that kids have when they are mad (like squeezing the cat, jumping up and down while yelling and screaming, scribbling in sister's book, etc). Each page starts with the phrase "I'm mad. I want to (fill in the blank). That's not ok, but I can..." When you lift the flap, you see an alternative to the inappropriate behavior. The weird thing is that the alternatives are not at all useful. Even as an adult, if I were so angry as to want to hit someone, I don't think I'd be calm enough to ask for some pots and pans to bang away on (and neither is a 2 year old).

As a matter of fact, my son got angry at the cat the other day and tried to squeeze her (which he'd never done before getting the idea in the book). Lucky for us, our kitty is pretty fast!

So, as an educational tool - not so good. But the illustrations (as with all K. Katz books) are cute and my son really does enjoy the book and pulls it out almost every day.

I purchased the gift box set "Little Do's and Dont's" with the idea it would be a helpful leaning tool for my 3 year old daughter. The "No Hitting" book was included in the set. She had never hit anyone, but had started to have fits of anger (perfectly normal for her age). We practice positive discipline and try to teach her what TO do when she is angry. As I turned each page and read, she listened intently and seemed to really enjoy the book. However, the first time she got mad...what did she do??? She hit her little brother!!! This is something she had never done. The babysitter told me that my daughter got mad at her and scribbled on her drawing. Yesterday, she stuck her tongue out at her father...again something she had never done. Tonight, she hit me in the face! Whoa! I so regret reading this book to her. Rather than learn the appropriate actions for venting her anger, she has copied the inappropriate actions of the child in the book. Children learn from modeling and they especially love to copy the behaviors of other children. "Monkey see, monkey do".

PLEASE, if you child has never hit anyone, or squeezed the cat, or jumped up and down when he is mad or scribbled in someone else's book or stuck out his tongue...do NOT read this book to him/her. It wil

Good manners and teaching your child ways to verbally express themselves rather than hitting, squeezing, scribbling, sticking out their tongues or throwing a tantums.

Each page starts out the same with ' I'm Mad.... and ends with " That's no okay, but I can.... After a few reading your child knows how each page starts & ends. Which makes them feel or at least my daughter feels like she is "reading" the book with me. I like that that Karen Katz draws children of all nationalities. My daughter also loves to help me lift the flaps on each page.

I'd love it if this book was also put out in board book form.

This book is barely about hitting and not once in the book does it say "no hitting". Hitting is only covered on the first page.

Then it gets into coloring in your sister's book and taking your mommy's popcicle. My daughter does not have a sister and I do not have a popcicle.

This may be the first book I throw in the trash.

This book is true to form, beautiful colored images that young children love to look at, but the story is weird. It talks about how to deal with frustration other than through hitting. However the advice didn't really make sense...the author writes that instead of sticking your tongue out at someone, stick your tongue and lick an ice cream cone instead....????? I didn't get it, and I didn't want my kids expecting me to give them ice cream everytime they got angry!

Her other books like Where is Mommy and Wiggle Your Toes are better.

Had the opposite effect on my daughter. I love Karen Katz books, but for some reason, this one misses the mark.

I bought this book to help my two kids learn about hitting. It is not really a book about hitting, but about all emotions. Not hitting, not sticking out tongue, not squeezing the cat, not being mad in general. My kids love all of these books. The lift the flaps are wonderful, the characters are cute and likeable, and the storylines are easy to follow for the kids.
