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! Prepared by: Sherell Stepp, Gilbert Primary School, South Carolina Picture Books Award Nominee, 2016)
