I loved how this book brought together two races. It really shows the innocence of children and how hate is bread. ( )

This is a book about two young girls who are neighbors, but are not allowed to play together. One girl is white and the other is dark skinned. They watch one another play, but they don't understand why they can't play together. Then one day, they decide to talk through the fence and become friends.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0399231161, Hardcover)

Clover's mom says it isn't safe to cross the fence that segregates their African-American side of town from the white side where Anna lives. But the two girls strike up a friendship, and get around the grown-ups' rules by sitting on top of the fence together.

With the addition of a brand-new author's note, this special edition celebrates the tenth anniversary of this classic book. As always, Woodson moves readers with her lyrical narrative, and E. B. Lewis's amazing talent shines in his gorgeous watercolor illustrations.
