Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Counting Kisses:

"A book as irresistible as a baby's smile....Every picture exudes all the warmth of a lovingly stitched crazy quilt ." Publisher's Weekly
Children's Literature - Eleanor Heldrich
This attractive, and strangely thickened, book for the very young calls itself a Lift-the-Flap, Hear-the-Sound Book. The words on the left-hand page of each double-page spread ask, what's making that noise? Then, when a large flap is lifted on the right-hand page, the words themselves ring out. For instance, on the left side of the first spread the text says, "What's behind the tree going vroom, vroom, vroom?" And when a large flap in the shape of a tree is lifted on the right side, there is a picture of a car and the book says "vroom, vroom, vroom!" The words printed under the flap say, "Now you do it" meaning the listener should now make the same sound. The sounds for baby to recognize are cheep, cheep, cheep; choo, choo, choo; vroom, vroom, vroom; ribbet, ribbet, ribbet; and giggle, giggle, giggle. On the back cover we learn that the sounds are light activated and, indeed under each flap there is a tiny hole to let in the necessary speck of light! Now we know the electronics necessary for the speck of light to initiate a sound are inside that extra thick last page! The baby will no doubt accept this with less interest than the reader.

Meet the Author

KAREN KATZ has written and illustrated over fifty picture books and novelty books very young children including the best selling Where is Baby's Belly Button? Her work as a textile designer and herinterest in folk art from around the world inspire her colorful illustrations. She lives in New York City with her husband and daughter.

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.
