Once upon a time, girls were not allowed to learn to read. This is the story of a girl who decided to change that.

Inspired by a true story from award-winning author Jane Yolen's family history, The Many Problems of Rochel-Leah is a stirring tale of what it feels like to be denied equality and the persistence it takes to work for change and fair treatment.

More than anything, Rochel-Leah wanted to learn to read. She wanted to read stories, and recipes, and poems that set your hair on fire. But in her small Jewish village in 19th century Russia, only boys learned to read, as they had for centuries. Still, Rochel-Leah was determined. She asked her mother and her aunties, but they couldn't read either. Her father told her to learn to cook instead. She even asked the rabbi, who said there were rules. But Rochel-Leah knew something important--she knew that rules could be changed.
