The Other Side by Jacqueline Woodson is a great powerful book to promote tolerance, communication, friendship and open-mindedness.
Woodson addresses race relations with two young girls, one black and one white. A fence divides their homes, but they slowly get to know each other by sitting on this barrier. “Someday somebody’s going to come along and knock this old fence down.”
