      Captivating illustrations and solid, rhythmic text that has a lot of value in a world that doesn t celebrate African American boys the way it should This is the kind of book that begs to be read aloud over and over.

    2. alana says:

      I ve never read a book that openly sang the praises of boyhood Though so many kids books just focus on boys as the main character, this book looks at a variety of different moods and interests and ties them all with the joys of being a boy It feels very personal Like the story should be read to one beloved young boy I can t imagine a group setting where I would choose this book, but I think it would be wonderful to add to a nursery or to share with family members and close friends Having spent s [...]

    3. Elizabeth says:

      Be Boy Buzz is a really charming celebration of boyhood, that emphasizes loving being a boy without giving into any of the toxic traits that might make up such a thing You can laugh and cry and be happy and beautiful and still love being a boy I would have expected nothing less from bell hooks The illustrations were cute, and this makes for a charming read aloud.

      Fun book Cute art.

    6. Kelly Carey says:

      This board book is meant to connect with a male audience and empower their choices, including showing emotions The message and diversity is needed in literature however, I am not fond of books that are marketed specifically for one gender.

    7. Jen Woo says:

      A celebration of boyhood.

    8. Molly Toomey says:

      Written in an almost free verse style, this book highlights a little african american boy who is doing different things, such as running, being, laughing, etc It s a positive book that reminds the little boy that he is something who can be anything he wants to be This book would be useful in any classroom, but especially within an inner city classroom that was filled with african american students who could relate to the book.

    9. Cara Byrne says:

      Like other hooks Raschka collaborations, this book is lively, energetic, and joyful It is clearly the gendered companion to _Happy to be Nappy_, though this book celebrates black boyhood in a way that is not as tied to their bodies I think _Grump, Groan, and Growl_ is hooks best work, as this work has some problematic framing of boyhood, but I appreciate the rhythm and tone of this picture book.

    10. Laura Jones says:

      I loved this book Be Boy Buzz is a great book to read to boys Chris Raschka uses very simple illustrations to allow the reader to clearly understand the point of the story I really enjoyed this book because it is a gender acceptable book that boys would connect to The book encourages boys to be themselves I would highly recommend the book.

    11. LisaSkripps says:

      Be Boy Buzz, by Bell Hooks, is a wonderful book about a young boy who loves being, well, a boy The main character, whose name we never learn, is a young African American boy who takes us on a journey explaining all of the things he enjoys doing as a boy With beautiful illustrations, this book will carry any reader away as they explore the wonderful things about being a boy.

    12. Angela Hutchinson says:

      This book is about the adventures of being a boy The illustrations are interesting in this book they are like chalk drawings Be Boy Buzz would be a good book for boys to read, because this book displays things that boys normally do I enjoyed this book because it displays the good and the bad things that boys sometimes will do.

    13. Tiffany Wideman says:

      Be Boy Buzz is a book about being a boy The sentences and the illustrations were very cute I would use this book in my classroom to teach tone and not everything has to be written in a traditional way Many student probably think that writing has to be perfect that is why it is very important to me to emphasize that your writing is unique to you and write exactly how you feel.

    14. Miri says:

      I haven t decided yet whether it s awesome or slightly disappointing that my first bell hooks was her children s book I ve been meaning to read her feminist theory for so long, and just happened to pick this up today without realizing what it was at first The book is lovely a young boy describing why he s in love with being a boy.

    15. Karen says:

      I wanted to like this story, but I just didn t It didn t help that I didn t really understand it, and the grammar was deliberately awful I did, however, like Raschka s illustrations in this context, which is new and different for me.

    16. Samantha says:

      A rhythmic read aloud celebration of being a boy Mixed media artwork features images of African American boys with a variety of skin tones I really liked the way each person was loosely defined by the lines making up their physical forms PreK 2.

    17. Lisa Rathbun says:

      I can see that people would love this book, but it wasn t a hit for me My son would totally hate the word beautiful Also, the grammar I be boy running I be boy jumping does not resonate for us As for me, I didn t get adding the word buzz at the end I guess he was buzzing around

    18. Ryan Miller says:

      This is a nice way to encourage boys to be themselves It seems to follow boy stereotypes, though, both in the text and the illustrations I like bell hooks poetry, but wish she would have pushed some alternative boy buzz.

    19. Kimberly says:

      Very cute, vibrant illustrations Read to my youth programming class during storytime presentations.

    20. Kellie Hennessy says:

      A lot of book appeal to the a certain kind of person This book is a different kind of book that allows for students to see their own language in a book that they do not normally get to see.

    21. Katie Ryder says:

      This book has wonderful illustrations and is all about celebrating being a boy The rhythm of the text is smooth and is easy to follow Great book for boys

    22. Randie D. Camp, M.S. says:

      A boy in love with being a boy Great messagell hooks is brilliant Her minimal text paired with Raschka s art is powerful.

    23. Earl says:

      With bell hook s lyrical text and Chris Raschka s fluid illustrations, boyhood is celebrated from the loud and active moments to the quiet and still times and everything in between

    24. Bridgid says:

      Positive images of male ness

    25. Tanika says:

      This book is about pride in being a boy, but anyone who reads it would feel proud to be his self or herself This book has great illustrations and rhymes Easy to follow along.

    26. Felicia Goodwin says:

      This book is great because of it s multicultural theme and the way it describes boys It is not stereotypical It is just a good book for boys.
