Abstract:

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.
