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.

And the flaps are easy for a baby to lift.

Format: Board book
Like many other Karen Katz flap books, this book features a baby looking for something, in this case her puppy. She goes around the house and yard asking is my puppy under the shower curtain? is my puppy in the garbage can?, etc, and then your child can lift the flap on the page to find out. All of the objects found in this book are animals, including a kitty, turtle, fish and squirrel. Like the other Karen Katz flap books, the flaps are not full page, but are shaped like the item illustrated on them (shower curtain, garbage can, etc). This is nice, but makes them not quite as sturdy as some other flap books, since baby doesn't always know which direction they open (some from side, some from top, etc) and the flaps can get ripped off sometimes. Not a big deal for us since they go back on fairly nicely with tape. This book is good for babies who like animals, and my daughter does like it, but I think her favorites are the ones where she can point to body parts (Where is Baby's Belly Button? is one of them) and also the Where is Baby's pumpkin?, which we read year round since it has both flaps and a fuzzy texture on most pages. But pretty much all of the Karen Katz books are a hit with toddlers and this is no exception.

This is one of the usual Karen Katz books. My daughter enjoys it. She likes puppies and opening the flaps with "surprizes" underneath.

Pros:
*A flap on every page to entertain young readers and let them practice fine motor skills
*Colorful illustration
*Most of the animals follow baby through the book (great for practicing animal names).

Cons:
*A big one: There is "NO" on almost every page. As baby looks for puppy every page says "No, its my goldfish", or "No, its my turtle". So when your child lifts the flap you animatedly say "NO". This was not well thought out.
*A few flaps are too small (especially the trash lid) and tore off easily. My daughter has several flap books and this is the only one I had to tape up.
*The animals that baby finds as she looks don't really have good "animal sounds" to practice.

I would recommend "Where is baby's bellybutton" over this book. It's the same author and has held up to many, many readings and much flap-lifting.

This is one of my grandson's favorite books. He just loves lifting the flaps. Can't go wrong with lifting flaps or touch and feel books.
