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.

My daughter received a copy of this book for her first birthday. She loved it, and especially loved touching the sparkly foil designs under each of the flaps.

Because she liked it so much, I ordered a copy for my friend's child's birthday. When it came, the description on the back of the book had been changed, and no longer are any of the pictures made of sparkly foil. The description on Amazon is inaccurate. It's still cute, but definitely not as cute.

I bought this book for my son a few months prior to his first birthday to help him learn about the birthday celebration. I also didn't want him to be frightened at his first birthday party with everyone singing to him, which is a lot of stimuli for a baby, so this book helped prepare him. This book is very colorful, filled with sparkley foiled pages and lots of cute surprises. It quickly became one of his favorite stories to read and was a well loved book. I now buy it as a first birthday gift for all the babies in our life. Karen Katz has yet again created a delightful book filled with whimisical illustrations that capture a baby's attention. The "lift the flaps" concept is wonderful for babies and toddlers. This board book is sturdy, but not indestructible. The flaps are glued on, so they can be torn off, but they do repair reasonably well. A great addition to baby's library!

I worked with infants for 5 years and noticed that children love Karen Katz. I bought several of these to give as first birthday presents and so far every parent has come back saying it is their child's new favorite book.

The copy of the book I received did not have any "sparkly foil" on any of the pages inside the book, cover only. I was disappointed. I think my 1 year old would have liked the book more if it had come as advertised.

I ordered this book for the daughter I gave up at birth. Her first birthday is comoing up and wanted something she could always remember me by and this book was perfect! There was cute little surprises behind every flap and the little girl in this book is as curious as my little girl is so it just seemed to fit. If you want a book that your little one will enjoy, I def suggest this book.

Excellent lift-the-flap kids book. I gave lots of these books to my nephew's kids as gifts. My nephew's wife is VERY picky as to what she likes - I think she wasn't sure what she thought of these books at first, but her son chooses these books to be read time and time again. I think she likes the sturdiness of the board books. I loved lift-the-flap when I was a kid - I'm glad my grand(?)-nephew enjoys them too - they make reading books (and learning from them) fun!

The book itself is cute and holds my children's attention. It is colorful. I had to tape one lift flap after the one year old began to separate it from the page. I was disappointed that the colors and textures that we had in our copy of "Where is Baby's Pumpkin?" which we purchased several years ago were not repeated. This is still a good book, but I think the publisher is trying to save costs.
