Heartwarming for all ages.

A gentle and understated glimpse of how two girls surmount the artificial barrier of race. Symbolic of the racial division is the fence between their properties. Wanting to be friends, but obedient to the warnings about not crossing over, they learn to sit together on the fence. Gradually, they are joined by others. Beautifully written and illustrated. Nicely bound and printed on quality paper. I loved the book and bought several other copies as gifts.
