In this masterfully illustrated book, a young boy wonders why people focus more on skin color than on the traits and values we all share as human beings. Through his eyes, we explore the common labels of Black and White. The inspiration for Tyler's poem came when he was three. Hearing people referred to as certain colors, he asked his grandma the stirring question, ?Am I a color? Tyler's innocent observations remind and inspire us to treasure every person, regardless of outward appearances? a universal message that touches readers of all ages.
