The golem's job was to defend the Jews of Prague from their persecutors, and he performed it almost too well. Retold from traditional sources and accompanied by David Wisniewski's unique cut-paper illustrations, Golem is a dramatic tale of supernatural forces invoked to save an oppressed people.

This picture book is somewhat unusual. The text is very dark. This book is geared more towards a history lesson and I don't really think is age appropriate. This would be better for older kids, but older kids are not going to want to read a picture book. The vocabulary level is also very high for a young reader. This book is geared more towards the Jewish religion, so would be ok to teach if the lesson is religions around the world. It depicts the Jewish religion well. This book does have a really well written story line, which I feel is difficult to find in books classified as "picture books." I do not think I would use this to teach a lesson in school, I feel that this just depends on the students in the class.
