The illustrations in this book look real. We thought that Jacqueline Woodson made this book from the time that black people and white people were not friends. The author used lots of details about Clover and Annie being friends. Our favorite part was when Annie and Clover got along. The character who we liked the most were Clover and Annie because they were nice to each other.
This book is a good book for children because it has lessons in it. For example "Someday somebody's going to come along and knock this old fence down." This lesson teaches that black people and white people should not be separated.
