9781588382924: Golemito

Originally published in the children’s magazine Cricket, Golemito is the story of how a couple of Jewish boys in Mexico City confront bullying by creating a Golem, the mythical creature of Jewish folklore, originally made by Rabbi Lowe, known as the Maharal of Prague, in the sixteenth century, to defend the city’s Jewish community from anti-Semitic attacks. Sammy Nurko, along with the story’s narrator, conjure an Aztec version of the Golem that is minute in size and responds to enchanting Nahuatl poetry. Written by internationally renowned, prize-winning author Ilan Stavans and illustrated by Teresa Villegas, Golemito is both an endearing tale of courage and redemption and an enthralling fusion of the Jewish and Latino traditions.

Review:

"Stavans’s tale is interesting, with the interweaving of Jewish and Latino backgrounds unique. This book would be a good read-aloud." ―Trevelyn Jones, School Library Journal
"This picture book addresses the problem of bullying and offers an original blend of Jewish and Aztec culture and folklore." ―Kirkus Reviews
"Teresa Villegas’ boldly rendered prints, coupled with the use of the non-traditional Anastasia font for Ilan Stavan’s story, make for a beautifully illustrated and designed book. A welcome addition to the growing canon of golem stories for children." ―Association of Jewish Libraries Reviews
"The award-winning author and illustrator have created something unique in Golemito. The marriage of the Latino and Jewish cultures is extremely appealing and the graphic illustrations are evocative and arresting." ―Jewish Book World
"Take a trip down to Mexico City for a tale of ingenuity and courage. Aztec poetry and the Jewish legend of the Golem of Prague are creatively mixed to inspire resilience against the playground bully." ―Jewish Family Times
"Golemito does a superb job of uniquely blending two cultures while dealing with the topic of classroom bullies. The beautiful two- color, woodcut style illustrations complement the story without distracting from the message, all the while lending an air of authenticity to the text. A great read aloud book." ―Journal of Language and Literacy Education
