See her TEDx talk to learn more.


.."the real magic is a refreshing use of art -- whether it's the eye-grabbing photos of "The Wise Animal Handbook" or the clever illustrations of "Lucky to Live in..." -- coupled with Jerome's "you haven't read this before" poetry aimed at the young crowd. That both books are "Read Together, Do Together" projects set in a sturdy large-format hardcover binding means that the $16.99 cover (steeply discounted by several booksellers) is worth the price of admission. These are books both you and your 4-year-old will treasure two decades hence." Watauga Democrat
The Lucky to Live in... series was awarded 2017 BOOK OF THE YEAR from Creative Child Magazine in the interactive memory book category.
"This work, I quickly discovered, is an intriguing twist on scrapbooking fundamentals. The magic in her work is the book's composition. Kate's style elicits and creates a dialogue between the parent (and other adults) and the child. For example, the child just does not by rote fill in the blanks to questions such as where do you live? Rather she raises the idea of their roots." The Zebra
"This is an interactive exercise manual that's designed so that a child engages in self-reflection and some exploration of the wider environment-geographical, artistic, and cultural-of Northern California. Child participation and attention are essential here, and activities include filling in a list of favorite animals, posting a picture of themselves, and picking a hero or a celebration. And when you have covered all of that and the child has partaken in it all, the book is designed to be set aside for some years. Revisitation should be another interactive time. Readers and writers of a couple of year's experience should do well herein. Hard backed, so it may well survive a decade's delay in revisiting, and glossy, so it will not dissolve, as so many children's presentations do, this is a fine bid for bonding." Manhattan Book Review
