Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS—Rosie shows and tells readers what she does in her preschool class. She includes tips for readers like "At play time, you can play by yourself or with a friend" and "When everybody works together, cleanup goes faster." Katz's characteristic bold, colorful design of collage and mixed-media illustration conveys friendly and reassuring thoughts about going to school, while representing children of many ethnicities. This large-format book with straightforward text has an easy-to-follow story line. Preschool teachers may choose this as a read-aloud during the first few days of school, or parents of children entering preschool might find this simple narrative helpful for guiding conversations about going to school. VERDICT A solid introduction to the preschool experience.—Lindsay Persohn, University of South Florida, Tampa --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

“A gentle resource for relieving preschool butterflies.” –Publishers Weekly
"An outstandingly clear and reassuring entry into the crowded field of getting-ready-for-preschool books." -Booklist --This text refers to the board_book edition.

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.
