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.

I love this book and so does my 3 month old.

I recently purchased this book for one of the toddlers in my pre-school class as a birthday gift.

I have to be careful with the flaps though because baby likes to try and rip them out!

I bought this book as an expansion of my 18-month old daughter's "library". She has adored author's book such as "Where is baby's mommy?" and "Where is baby's bellybutton?" I was hoping that this book would be just as good. Don't get me wrong, my daughter loves lifting the flaps and other interactive aspects of the book. However, each time I read this book to her, I have to change the narrative to come in 3rd person, i.e. "Who's hiding behind the ball? Peek-a-boo! It's a silly baby (girl/boy)" instead of "It's silly you". Even my 18-month old is smart enough to know that the drawings of children in the book are some other children, and not her. When I used the original narrative, she got upset and tried to tell me that she is not in the book, it's some other babies. They say that the concept of "self" comes about at approximately 12-months. So, the book as written would be most useful with 0-12 months age group. For older kids you would have to change the narrative to make the story about someone else, otherwise, they would just get upset.

Also, as is the case with all Karen Katz's books, the flaps come off way too easily when a child pulls on them slightly. I have to use clear tape to attach the flaps back where they belong in all of the books. We already had to buy 3 replacements for the books my daughter enjoys the most. Perhaps it's the publisher's way to ensure constant demand. I found these books at local TJMaxx and Marshall's for $2-$4.

This book has very thin lift flaps that my daughter ripped right off just trying to open it. I am a little disappointed in the poor quality for the price. The book does have cute illustrations so I will keep it but I will just need to reinforce all the flaps with clear contact paper and glue them back on. Wish this board book had board flaps instead of thin paper ones. Bad design!!!

We've tried to find a book that our now 11 month old would enjoy before bed. It took several but finally we found this one. I'm not sure where it came from but she loves it. It will almost always calm her down and she has so much fun now trying to lift the flaps. It will likely not make it to the donation bin because of how much she enjoys it, but that is a small price to pay for peace! I highly recommend this book over similar lift the flap books that have a little too much prose and not enough color for my little one.

Very good book, our children love it. But it is not rugged enough, they rip it up, especially our son. Daughter was not as bad.

We have several of Karen Katz books and my daughter enjoys her books. Unfortunately we found this book to be cheaply made. The flaps were too easy for my daughter to tear. She has ripped most of the flaps in the book. I have seen other books by different authors with much thicker flaps. The whole point in buying a board book is that your child can play with it without concerns about the pages tearing. My daughter does enjoy this book because she is at the age where she gets a charge out of peek-a-boo. A great story for my 10 month old but unfortunately a cheaply made product.

My 20 month old grandson loves to interact with this book. Colorful and imaginative with just enough flaps to lift. Short and sweet...

It's a great book, especially since my little one's favorite game is "peek a boo". However, I'm so disappointed in the condition in which I received the book. I did purchase this book used and in good condition. With that being said, I expected some wear and tear and maybe some writing.. I have purchased many "good condition" books on Amazon and other places. But to me, a lift the flap book that is missing flaps to lift is not in "good" condition.

It is a great book and I love all of the books in this Karen Katz collection. I would definitely rate this 5 stars if the condition were more accurate. So beware of the condition you order; someone else's definition of good may be different than your own.

I'm giving this book 4 stars because my son loves peek-a-boo and looking at the other baby faces brings him a lot of joy. I bought many turn the flap board books because they are interactive (baby can turn the flaps) and my son is very active and needs to participate. However, he has successfully chewed, torn-off and bent almost every flap - in a matter of days. In fact, he has now torn half of a page out of the book also. Honestly, I don't care because he loves books and will spend about 15 - 20 mins on his own a few times a day just looking at his books. Just getting an 8 month old interested in books is step one. If you have an active, strong baby, don't expect the book to last too long. Go with the flow.
