This book would sit well in either a 2nd grade or 3rd grade classroom. It has some themes and words that should be saved for older kids but not too old. The book is about a Jewish ghetto in the Czech Republic in the 1500s. They are mocked and slandered by the people of Prague so a rabbi summons a Golem whose only purpose is to keep the Jewish people safe. The golem proceeds to do just that but the more it protects the Jewish people, the more it grew. By the time the Jewish people were safe the Golem did not want to go back to being clay but its purpose had been served.

In this poignant and dramatic retelling of the Jewish traditional tale of invoking supernatural forces to protect the Jewish people from oppression, in ancient Prague, and the striking use of cut-paper collage illustrations combine to make a truly powerful and moving story. The afterword adds interest by discussing the history of the Jews and the legend of the golem. This book would make a wonderful traditional cultural read-aloud story to share with students.
