The Other Side

Written by Jacqueline Woodson and Illustrated by E.B. Lewis

Noticing Annie, a white girl, sitting on a fence watching Clover and her black friends play, Clover finally reaches out. She and Annie get to know each other sitting on the fence—until Clover’s friends let Annie play with them. Simple language and vivid illustrations reveal how fences can come down and friendships are forged.
