A child experiences the sights and sounds of morning--from a bee buzzing outside to the noise of the awakening household to the flurry before Mommy and Daddy leave for work. Buzz celebrates the warm familiarity of the family routine, as well as the childlike game of discovering a recurring sound.

Buzzz! The bee eats breakfast in a big red flower. Buzzz! Mommy and Daddy snore. Buzzz! Daddy shaves his face with a silver electric razor.
Early morning is full of busy, buzzing activity. Seen from the perspective of a small boy in rocket and moon pajamas, it's an exciting time. The activity reaches a frenzied pitch when Mommy grinds her coffee, our hero makes a splash landing with his airplane in his apple juice, the toast in the toaster pops up, and the clothes dryer finishes its cycle. Buzz, buzz, buzz!
Using a variety of printmaking techniques and a rich, muted palette, Margaret Chodos-Irvine creates strikingly appealing patterns and perspectives on a morning routine. Chunky blocks of color encourage the eye to linger and catch the details: the boy "shaves" next to his father with his toy car; the honey-sucking bee wears delicate filigreed wings; and banana peels sprawl in the foreground as the boy and his mother make a shake in the blender. There's a retro feel to the illustrations, especially when Mommy buzzes out the door in her big 1950s-style swinging coat and oversized pocketbook. Young readers will be all abuzz over Janet S. Wong's original, just-right morning book. (Ages 3 to 7) --Emilie CoulterAbout the Author:
