More About the Author
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.

It does the job. However, don't like the curtain flaps... they get ripped off more times than I'd like. I always tape them back with packing tape (which is a great book repair medium), yet they still manage to find their way off the book.
The cover features an eye catching dreidel in shiny metallics. The inside features colorful, baby-friendly artwork.
Fun stories with an element of discovery and learning!
Just as much fun as Karen Katz other books "where is baby's mommy" and "where is baby's belly button"
A must for infants and toddlers!
This is one of my son's (11 mo old) absolute favorite books. He picks it up and brings it to me to read several times a day. He loves the peekaboo game and lifts the flaps himself. I like that it familiarizes him with the words and objects related to the Chanukah celebration. We have other Chanukah board books that cover the meaning behind the holiday (for example My First Chanukah by Tomie dePaola) but I realize now that they're so far beyond my son's comprehension that I laugh at myself for buying them. This book, however, is right at his level.
My one annoyance with the book is that the bag of gelt is called "gold coins" and the latkes are called "potato pancakes." It's easily remedied by just using the words I prefer.

I was hoping the flaps were made of different materials, but they are just a heavy paper. I imagine they will rip off with repeated use by baby.Published 12 months ago by N. Peterson
