LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS
New York : Disney Hyperion Books, 2013
IL K-3, RL 3.5
||What if you told you were not allowed
to learn to read or write? What if there were no books or
schools for you to learn from? Would you wake up in the
middle of the night and sneak out with your mother to go
to a private school? Would you be willing to walk in the
dark and crawl into a dark pit to learn? If discovered you
could be beaten or killed? Would you risk your life to
learn to read and write? That is just what Rosa and her
mom do each night because they want to learn so badly.
Read Light in the Darkness to see if she is successful!
