Item Description...
Overview
Two girls, one white and one black, gradually get to know each other as they sit on the fence that divides their town.

Publishers Description
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.

The Other Side  May 26, 2007
"Don't you ever cross that fence child!" A little colored girl was playing out on her swing, and then came a white girl. They both looked at eachother in confusion. In the early 1900's, there was many problems between colored people and whites. They just didnt get along very well. The colored girl ran inside and asked her ma why she couldn't cross the fence. She told her baby girl that, many people are different, and we are not the same as them. The next day, her family had a get-together, and her cousin's were over. The white girl came outside and asked if she could play jumprope with them. And, after that many different things have been said. What has been said? Find out by reading, "The Other Side."

The Other Side  May 24, 2007
Back in the day, whites and blacks had seperate everything. Some things included schools, drinking fountains, and jobs. I read THE OTHER SIDE, by Jacqueline Woodson. This book was realistic fiction. I think kids in the fourth grade that enjoy learning about the civil rights would like this book.
THE OTHER SIDE is about two girls who see eachother almost everyday, but yet don't talk. The only thing seperating them is a fence dividing the white and black land. Annie (white) would always watch Clover (black) and her friends play while she sat on the fence. One day, Clover decided to go and talk to Annie. Do they become friends?
To end, I thought this book was great. It talked about the some kids had during the civil rights movement. The story's problelm was that it was just to dangerous to play with and talk to people of a different race.
 
The Other Side  May 23, 2007
"The Other Side" is a wonderful book because it shows that when black and white people are together it's not bad. This book was about a white girl and a black girl. They both wanted to cross over the fence to see what it was like. So one day, their mamas told them that they were not allowed to go on the other side of the fence, it just wasn't right. She wasn't allowed to because it was always like that and it wasn't going to change. The next day came and they caught eyes. That's all about the summary I am going to tell you.
The characters in this story were nice, pleasant, and thoughtful because they didn't know what was so bad to be with the opposite color. They were also kind to each other. (Well I guess I can say that). I also think that you would like this book because it teaches you something that Martin Luther King Jr. tried to teach you. That's all it was easier to follow while you read the book.
I was actually pretty well shocked on how the book had ended because of what their mamas said to the girls. The difference of this book is that it is a children's book and you learn about it in about 7th grade but children read this book when they are in Pre-k or something.
 
The Other Side Review  May 23, 2007
Do you like sad, heart-touching children stories? Then you would love, The Other Side. It's a children's story by Jacqueline Woodson. The main characters are of different race, and they end up getting along very well and becoming friends. The main idea of The Other Side is that people, especially kids, can get along with someone even though they are different.
Another main point is that children can teach adults a lot about getting along and accepting people for who they are. The book is written for children to understand and also for adults to learn about how it was for children and parents in the past. The Other Side is a great realistic fiction book and will teach people of all ages about history of segregation.
