This beautiful story is for all children, especially those who are called “half”-something or “part”-something.

This gentle, loving story deals with a child’s questions about who he is. When one of Tony’s friends says that Tony is not “all Indian,” he’s “less than half,” Tony seeks answers that have meaning for him. These answers come, from his grandfather and from an ear of Indian corn: “Tony looked into his grandfather’s eyes in the mirror framed by all of the different sizes, shapes and colors of his family. Finally, he understood: He was not less than half; he—like the corn—was more than whole.”

This beautiful story and luminous illustrations are for all children, especially for children of mixed parentage who are called “half”-something or “part”-something, and struggle with the question, “where do I belong?”
