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 baby loves the lift-the-flap books and we already have three Karen Katz books.

My daughter enjoyed it when I lifted the flaps to reveal the pumpkin or other treats hiding behind the pages.

I bought this book along with other Karen Katz books and my grandson loves "Where Is Baby's Pumpkin" the best. He loves looking for the different pictures and feeling the fabrics on the characters. His favorite part is opening the closet and finding the 5 bats. Even though he is only 16 months, he counts along with me. I would highly recommend this book for any baby or toddler.

I really hate to split hairs over a children's book, especially when the author is one of my favorites. But I'm disappointed in this one. We love our Karen Katz books, and thought this one would be as big a hit with my son as the others. Unfortunately, the book we received only has "sparkly" pictures on the cover and back page. The text notes a fuzzy black cat, sparkly bats, etc., but there's no fuzz and no sparkles. My son enjoys the book, but he never initiates reading it the way he does with the others in this series. "Where Is Baby's Birthday Cake?" etc. I didn't realize what a difference the shiny pictures and textures make until we got this. We had hoped to read this again and again with my son before Halloween, so we'd have lots to talk about through the month of October. This book didn't meet our needs, because it does not capture my son's interest. It's a sweet introduction to Halloween images and I think I can recommend it, but only if you buy in person so you know what you're getting.

I'm very disappointed in this publisher. I still greatly love the work of Karen Katz, but I'll think twice before buying from this series again. If the publisher can't be relied upon to deliver a uniform product, then I'll need to see what I'm getting before I check out. That's a bummer, since Amazon is where we buy our books.

This is the first Karen Katz book my son has seen. It was given to him as a Halloween present by his grandparents. This is the first book that my son insisits in his little 9 month old way of squirming and squealing, that I read to him again and again. I've placed it on his bookshelf in his bedroom and the first thing he does when he wakes up for a nap is holds his hand out in that direction to tell me he wants the book. Same thing before each nap and before bedtime. He is addicted! Every page has a large flap that is easy for little hands to maneuver and there are lot of shiny, sparkly, glittery colors in this book which I think he also finds highly attractive.

My five month old daughter LOVES this book and gets so excited over all of the pictures! The pictures are hidden under the flaps and are sparkly and glittery and the colors are so beautiful. I read other reviews that mentioned that their books had different textures like velvet on the black cat, but my board book does not have any texture...I actually wish it did as this would make it an A++.

It is also wonderful for talking with your baby about colors and shapes and, yes! ~ even prepositions. I am a teacher so I feel it is never too early to start no matter how young your baby is :~) This book made me look into all of the other Karen Katz books! I highly recommend it :)

My niece really enjoyed this book. It is very colorful and the flaps are easy to lift for small hands. We talk about what is under the flaps and she smiles. At the end she loves finding the pumpkin.

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!
