Born is Moscow, she studied art and illustration at Moscow Polygraphic Institute, then taught at Moscow Polygraphic Institute, then taught at Moscow University before moving to the United States. Katya Arnold has created several children's books, including "Meow!", "Duck, Duck, Goose?", and "The Adventures of Snowwoman". She lives in New York with her family.From Booklist:
PreS.-Gr. 1. Part picture book, part nature guide, and part game, this brightly illustrated volume offers a pleasant, highly visual introduction to the natural world. Each spread includes two complementary pages. On the left, Arnold presents small paintings of many individual plants and animals, each labeled and clearly delineated against the white background. On the right, a full-page painting depicts a habitat that includes every species shown on the left. The game is to find and identify all the animals and plants in the crowded pictures. Other than the labels, the pages are wordless. Each right-hand illustration includes the same dog and cat, and sometimes a girl and a boy, adding continuity. More concrete information is given in the closing pages, including labeled diagrams showing the anatomical parts of certain fungi, flowers, insects, mollusks, birds, mammals, etc. The colorful paintings express both joy in the profusion of nature and in the observation of detail. Though children may need help in using the book, an enthusiastic reader could make it a playful experience for a child, fostering both visual discrimination skills and an interest in nature.
