The Other Side

Written by Jacqueline Woodson

Illustrated by E.B. Lewis

Published by G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers (January 15, 2001)


Clover lives in a place that is separated with fence. The fence separates White people and African-American side of the town. Anna is Clover’s friend who is living opposite side of the fence, and Clover’s mom tells her not to go around the fence. But two girl’s genuine friendship makes beautiful harmony.

I love this beautiful friendship that two young girls are having in this book. I think this is what is so great about the children’s literature. I’m always so thankful and touched when children have their pure mind to look at the world. This book honors diversity, and talks about that appearance does not matter. This book gives a message that combat racial discrimination during the certain historical era.
