Babies sure have a lot of growing up to do! They can't eat with a fork, sleep in a real bed, poop on a potty, ride a trike, or read a book. On every sweet lift-the-flap spread, Karen Katz's illustrations celebrate the varied accomplishments of older siblings who may be in need of a little ego-stroking after a new baby's arrival!
Each book ends on a warm, loving note with the older child reassuring the baby that "one day you'll be big like me."
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 received the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal Award, one of several honors Katz has earned for her work.
