Description: A candle given to Teresa by her Mexican grandmother becomes a symbol of hope and home during the lean, hard times her family faces as migrant laborers in America. The illustrations' contrasting tones empathetically reflect the workers' feelings, while the refrain of a Christmas song, ur light will light your way,conveys their wish for a better life.
