Summary: An African-American boy who loves to read helps his mother on the road to literacy. Joseph loves books and on library day, the librarian lets him take two books home--an easy one he can read by himself and a harder one that someone can read for him. One night, Joseph takes his book to his mother and is distressed to find out that she can't read. This compassionate story of how a mother and son face the challenge of literacy is told with warmth and sensitivity. Full color
