Title: Pink and Say

Bibliographic information: Polacco, P. (1994). Pink and Say. New York: Philomel Books.

Brief annotation: Pink and Say are unlikely friends who were fighting in the same war. Pink saves Say after he was shot and takes him to his mother until he is better. They become very close but are torn apart.

Grade:4th – 5th grade

Genre: Contemporary realistic fiction

Readers who will like this: This book would be good for students learning about the civil war or for anyone that likes reading about history.

Rating: 4 – I really enjoyed this book. It showed a different side to a war that everyone knows about. Two regiments that would not normally work together, became friends.

Question: What do you know about the civil war? What were the two sides fighting? Who made up these two sides?
