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.

We have quite an array of lift the flap books, most from Karen Katz. I was super excited to get this one because my husband is from Israel and I am not Jewish, so we celebrate both Hannukah & Christmas in our house. I wanted a fun, colorful book to go along with the array of Christmas books we have.

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 Short of It::: This colorful lift-the-flack book won't be for everyone, but it fills a niche for parents wanting to teach older babies and toddlers the names of various items associated with Hanukkah. There's a menorah, gelt, potato pancakes, presents and other things.

The cover features an eye catching dreidel in shiny metallics. The inside features colorful, baby-friendly artwork.

Great! My son loves these lift the flap books!
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!

Another great book by Katz. Great age appropriate illustrations and story line. I am a lead teacher in an infant room and this was engaging yet simple enough for my students.

This is a "peekaboo" book that allows the reader to search for the dreidel alongside the baby in the book. Each spread has a question, for example, "Is baby's dreidel behind the curtains?" and a flap that the reader can flip up to look for the dreidel. On each page, the reader discovers some other Chanukah-related item (Menorah, latkes, gelt, etc) instead of the dreidel. Finally the dreidel is found on the last page.

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.

My 9-mo old son loves lifting the flaps. Its not just finding the dreidel, you find other items along the way.

Karen Katz's books are fairly formulaic (how many things are hiding "behind the eggs," anyway?!), but it's a formula that works. We pack this book away during the year, so it's fairly fresh come Hannukah. My toddler loves lifting the flaps and yelling "no" as the baby searches for the dreidel, and he's definitely learned some of the holiday vocab from repeat readings. All in all, it's nice to have a Hannukah book from a familiar series. It's also made a great gift to toddler friends.

Written by the same lady as the "Where is Baby's Belly Button" this book is exactly what I expected. Cute graphics, lifting flaps on each page. A much better Chanukkah book than others I've gotten.
