The Little Boy Star: An Allegory of the Holocaust

by

The Little Boy Star: An Allegory of the Holocaust Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A young Jewish boy is given a star to wear. At first he is proud of the decoration, but soon finds the star overshadowing him--no one sees the boy, only the star. Lonely, frightened, and helpless, he watches as other star-wearers are led away into the night. This affecting allegory, rich with symbolism, educates children about the events of the Holocaust in a way that young minds can easily grasp. Told in simple, poetic language, the book offers a tender message of tolerance and inner strength. Little Boy Star includes an introduction by David A. Adler, author of A Picture Book of Anne Frank and other critically acclaimed children's books on the Holocaust. Olivier Latyk's haunting illustrations underscore the poignant theme.
