Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Hugs-and dads-get their due in this jubilant counting book. In scenes bursting with the high-energy colors and patterns of a crazy quilt, a father lists and demonstrates with his toddler the 10 categories of daddy hugs: "Eight dancing on Daddy's feet cha-cha hugs," "Nine 'Don't be afraid of the dark' hugs." Like a hidden camera, Katz's collages capture those private, priceless moments of one-on-one time between a parent and child. Ending with a "good night hug," this is an ideal bedtime book for dads to read aloud. (ages Birth to 2)

For Father's Day, Daddy Hugs 1 2 3 by Karen Katz joins the author/artist's titles for toddlers, including Daddy and Me. From "one `I'm so glad you're my baby!' hug" to 10 " `I love you!' good-night hugs," Daddy covers all the bases. Katz's signature patterns in polka-dots and plaids, and Crayola-bright colors will reassure little ones that they can count on Dad's affection. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
It is gratifying to see a Dad spending time with a little one. Here Daddy is reenacting typical events during a day and as he does so, baby gets a hug. There is one when it is wake up time to show how happy he is to be with his little baby. Then on to three hugs to help with the burping after a presumed feeding, five to kiss a boo-boo and make it all better, seven for pajama time, nine for don't be afraid of the dark, and then 10 big hugs to say goodnight "I love you!" While the text may not scan really well for a read aloud, the sentiment is nice and the pictures are engaging for a one-on-one with a child on your lap. 2005, McElderry Books/Simon & Schuster, Ages 1 to 5.
—Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS-A father counts his way through a typical day with his baby, from "one `I'm so glad you're my baby!' hug" in the morning to 10 affectionate hugs before bed. Along the way there are boo-boos to be kissed, first steps, and games of peek-a-boo. Throughout the day, a brown cat in the background mirrors the actions and expressions of the child. Though Daddy Hugs is presented as a counting book, it doesn't really work in that role. Numerals appear at the top of each spread, but there are no countable objects to reinforce the concept (aside from the small, extraneous purple asterisks that appear near each number). Done in gouache, colored pencil, and collage, the illustrations are made up of Katz's signature patterned objects and cutesy round-headed figures. There is nothing that stands out about this title; consider purchasing it only if you need more stories about a father-child bond.-Rachael Vilmar, Atlanta Fulton Public Library, GA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

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.

      One of our top favorites

      I bought this book for our daughter to give to her daddy on his first Father's Day when she was six months old. She absolutely LOVES this book. She used to give us the biggest belly laughs when I would read this to her at night. It was worth the purchase price just for one reading and the big giggles I got from her. Nothing is more priceless in life. She is two now and will read along with me pointing out the name of various things in the pictures. She remembers this book from when she was very young. I am buying several copies to give to our friends who will become parents sometime down the road. It is a great way to make memories with your child.
