   Beautiful book
My son likes this book. It makes him feel proud to be a black child and he enjoys the poem very much.
This is a great book for young black kids. When they begin to repeat it on their own, it's powerful. I buy this book for every child because of how powerful it is. It's perfect for a 6 year old learning to read, but a 1 year old won't ruin it because it's strong. The pictures are striking. The book was great and the purchase was great. She looks like the people in the Hey Black Child book, my 6 year old step- son said when I asked about his new teacher. I couldn't have been happier.
   A much needed book
It gives young children self love and purpose, while at the same time it's also a great introduction to poetry.
   10 out of 10!
When I read this book to my two year old son, helights up with pride. I would recommend this book to other transracial adoptive families.
   Instilling Self-esteem and Racial Pride in Black Children
The book is well illustrated. It's perfect for young children to read aloud. This book helps to instill pride in the black child's racial and cultural identity. I would recommend this book to every Black family and to every preschool or early childhood classroom.
   I guess the students are memorizing the poem because they connected with the words and the rhyme or beat of the piece. I luv it.
For some of my 4 and 5 year olds, learning to memorize and repeat the Hey Black Child words has taken almost 6 months. As they recite more and more of this poem, you should check them out, just as they appeared pleased with themselves when they learned a new word. They smile during practice. I heard a young person say, " Do you know you are strong?" when they were shooting baskets on the playground. I mean a strong person! After he put enough upward force and direction behind the ball that went into the basket, his teammates clapped and chanted with him. His pleasureconfidence brought tears to my eye. The words in this poem are meaningful to the children, and you would think that some Rap Music Star was touring with the poem.
   full of beautiful color pictures on every page
The poem was always taught to our students by us as a teacher. I couldn't overlook the beautiful color pictures on every page of the book. I bought 2 to pass on to my children. A wonderful book.
