This story is about a black little girl and white little girl who live on opposite sides of a fence and throughout the story develop interest in each other and eventually a friendship. This book has a very clear plot made up of events and character interactions, and the fence that divided the two girls that they eventually sat on together was a very intentional and thoughtful symbol of division between black and white people. This book would be appropriate for early to intermediate readers. ( )

This book was about an African American girl that met a white little girl. They became friends, and they crushed the society norms. I think that it would be a great book for mid primary school, and to learn more about friendship and the ability to be friends with anyone. I think I would say that I really enjoyed this book, and the message of friendship against the odds that it gave. ( )

Jacqueline Woodson provides a different approach about segregation. In the eyes of Clover, the main character and her relationship with Annie, her neighbor. Clover, remarks several times that her mother warn her not to cross the fence because it will be dangerous. But, one day this situation changed. Clover was playing, and she noticed a little girl over her fence, they stared but never talk. The girls met in the street, and stared at each other, until Clover's mother told her not to because it wasn't polite. Then one day, Annie asked if she could play with Clover and friends but Sandra said No, and Clover hesitated about this decision. The summer come with a lot of rainy days, Clover found out Annie playing in the rain. Annie seemed to adore getting herself wet, in a way Clover was intrigued about Annie playing in the rain. Clover would like to play like Annie but her mother said no, so Clover had to only watch Annie playing. One day, Annie decided to introduce herself to Clover without jumping the fence that separates them. When they were talking they seem to get along, they noticed the similarities between them, including their mothers. Annie, told Clover, to sit over the fence, so she did. Days came by, and the friendship grew, Clover and Annie spent their summer together, also Annie played with Clover's friends. In the end, they all sat over the fence, hoping one day the fence disappears. This children's book faces the segregation in literal way. The 'fence' between two races was built by adults, but kids can destroy this, to run together and be children. Students could understand that no matter where children come from or even if they look different, they are the future and they can disappear this 'fences' to play along and be happy. ( )

This story is told from the perspective of a young black girl named Clover who meets a young white girl named Annie and makes an unlikely friendship with her over a summer in a segregated community. The only problem I have with this book is that it would be easy for children to misinterpret (or have it misinterpreted to them) that this book argues for a "both sides were racist" narrative in the Jim Crow South. Particularly the scene where Annie asks to play with the group of black girls and is immediately told no is exactly the sort of passage that gets cherrypicked out of context and used to argue for the existence of black racism. What the author intended, but was more subtle about, is that the other girls did not want to play with a white girl not because she was white, but because that could endanger them and their families if the wrong people saw them playing together. The fact that they live under racial segregation is so pervasive and accepted that its hardly mentioned, and when it is, its immediately dismissed as "the way things are". This undercurrent frames a lot of the scenes, such as Clover's mother hurrying her along when she sees Annie in public, or her watching the girls sitting on the fence together, in a completely different light than if they're taken at face value.

Since they aren't supposed to play together, two little girls decide to sit together on the fence that separates their properties.
