Karen Katz has written and illustrated many books for children, including Can You Say Peace, My First Ramadan, Counting Kisses and Where is Baby's Belly Button. Long inspired by folk art from around the world, she was inspired to write her first book, Over the Moon, when she and her husband adopted their daughter from Guatemala, and she wanted to tell the story of welcoming Lena into their lives. Katz loves to paint and experiment with texture, color, collage and pattern.
The Colors of Us book. Seven-year-old Lena and her mother observe the variations in the color of their friends' skin, viewed in terms of foods and things found in nature. By the author of Over the Moon: An Adoption Tale. Something about me I have always been interested in folk art from around the world: Indian miniatures, Mexican ceramics, fabrics, Chagall, Matisse, children’s art, and promitive painting, and I love to paint and experiment with pattern, texture, collage and color. In The Colors of Us Karen Katz writes and illustrates a beautiful tale about the colors found in the diaspora. The main character, Lena, and her Mom, walk throughout their neighborhood appreciating the different shades that people can come in. Some may be thrown by the comparisons to foods and everyday things like leaves, but I think Katz is trying to draw upon images that are completely relatable, regardless of your ethnic, social and economic background.
