About the author :

Karen Katz has written and illustrated more than fifty picture books and novelty books including the bestselling Where Is Baby’s Belly Button? After graduating from the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, she attended the Yale Graduate School of Art and Architecture where she became interested in folk art, Indian miniatures, Shaker art, and Mexican art. Her book, Counting Kisses, was named one of the 100 Greatest Books for Kids by Scholastic Parent & Child and was a Children’s Book-of-the-Month Club Main Selection. Karen, her husband Gary Richards, and their daughter, Lena, divide their time between New York City and Saugerties, New York. Learn more about Karen Katz at KarenKatz.com.

Biography

From painting and sculpture to quiltmaking and costume design, Karen Katz has been making art in one form or another all her life. But it was not until she and her husband adopted a baby from Guatemala that she considered a career in children's books. Published in 1997, her debut picture book, Over the Moon, told the story of one adoptive family's happy beginnings in a country far away. Since then, Katz has gone on to create many award-winning picture, board, and novelty books that capture the joys of childhood in simple storylines, vibrant colors, and winsome illustrations. Some include count-down elements (Counting Kisses, Ten Tiny Tickles) or interactive features (Where Is Baby's Belly Button?, Peek-A-Baby); still others introduce holiday traditions (My First Kwanzaa, My First Chinese New Year) or reinforce good habits, manners, or behavior (Excuse Me!, No Biting!, I Can Share).

Perhaps the secret to Katz's success (besides the undeniable appeal of her signature round-headed babies!) can be summed up in this quote taken directly from the author/artist's website: "When an idea for a story pops into my head, I ask these questions: Will a child want to read this book? Will parents want to read this book with their children? Will this book make a child laugh? 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 to any of those questions is 'yes,' then I know I'm on the right track."

Good To Know

Katz explains the difference between designing picture books and board books in this way:
Picture books usually have more words in them but they tell more of a narrative story. Board books are usually simpler. They are generally 6 spreads and are about one concept. When I create a board book, I try to make something that is very interactive for the baby, with flaps and pull tabs and lots of surprises. Board books are a perfect size for a baby's hand to hold and touch. Babies can have an experience all by them selves with a good board book and can also have a good lap-time experience with a mommy or daddy or caregiver. Picture books take a little more care since the pages can rip. With a board book, you can throw it in a stroller, chew on the corners and even wipe off mashed peas.

Katz has received numerous awards for her work, including:

  • Smithsonian, People, and Parent Guide magazines Best Books designation, all 1997, all for Over the Moon
  • Bill Martin, Jr. Picture Book Award nomination, Florida Reading Association Award nomination, and Child magazine Best Book designation, all 2000, all for The Colors of Us
  • National Parenting Publications Gold Award, and Child magazine Best Book designation, both 2001, and Bank Street School Books Committee Best Book designation, 2002, all for Counting Kisses
  • Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal Award, 2002, for Counting Kisses and Twelve Hats for Lena.
  • The long-awaited companion title to Karen Katz's bestselling Where Is Baby's Belly Button?.

    Where is baby’s tummy that’s oh, so yummy?

    Under the teddy bear!

    Little ones will love lifting the large, sturdy flaps in this book to reveal Baby's pretty nose, sweet feet, yummy tummy, and more! This new gem from Karen Katz is sure to be a year-round favorite for younger readers.

    Publishers Weekly

    Katz's characteristically chubby and happy babies are at the center of this peek-a-boo book. "Where are baby's feet/ that are/ good enough/ to eat?" asks the opening spread. The answer (and the feet) are revealed under a floral flap ("Under the blanket!"). A gleeful baby's knees are behind a colorful beach ball, and a baby's "tushy/ that's soft/ and smooshy" peeks out from under the baby's diaper. A tender way for parents to bond with their infants. Ages 1–4. (Aug.)

    WHERE IS BABY'S YUMMY TUMMY? [STARRED REVIEW!]

    Author: Katz, Karen

    Illustrator: Katz, Karen

    This peek-a-boo provides a stellar examination of the human body.

    An encouraging voice calls for the location of each sweet and cuddly body part. Beginning with the toes, each gentle question follows a consistent rhyming format. From feet “good enough to eat” to a nose “as pretty as a rose,” tykes of various ethnicities play an active role in their exploration. The perspective zooms in on the jovial babes, giving them every inch of each page. Katz's signature solid spreads incorporate clean patterns with light details. The strategic flaps placed in different corners use objects commonly found in daily life (blanket, teddy bear) to fully hide each featured choice. The coy text playfully calls for audience participation. “Where is baby's tushy / that's soft and smooshy?”; a naked behind peeks from underneath a diaper when the flap is pulled down. The final example highlights the youngster's entire form.

    Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot

    If this wasn't a board book, the title might make you think it was going to be some sort of horror story, but instead it reflects a game parents often play with their little ones. In typical Katz style, a variety of round-faced babies fill the pages of this lift-the-flap board book. One side of the spread poses a question and the answer is revealed by lifting the flap. To illustrate; "Where is baby's tummy that's oh, so yummy?" Lift the nearly full page flap and baby's belly button is revealed behind the teddy bear that he is holding. The plus in this book is the variety of children—boys and girls from various ethnic groups. Kids are bound to see themselves in one of the illustrations. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
