    How to scare your kid stiff, old-country style, by Isaac Bashevis Singer, with illustrations by Maurice Sendak

  2. Misti says:

    A collection of Yiddish tales, some funny, others quite touching. The title story, the last in the book, was one of the latter, and probably my favorite in this volume. Many are set around Hanukkah, so this would be a perfect read for that time of year. If you have an interest in Eastern European Jewish village tales, or enjoy short story collections in general, this one is actually lovely.

  3. Amber Scaife says:

    A fun little book of very short Jewish folktales, all set around Hanukkah. Not much else to say about this one, except that fans of Maurice Sendak will enjoy his illustrations.

  4. Elise says:

    Whimsical, magical, and delightful children's stories, Zlateh the Goat is a collection of Jewish folktales that teach lessons. I am always captivated and drawn in by Singer's stories, and this book is no different, but these tales are not for just any children. Save them for the edgy kids who are not afraid of the dark side. Maurice Sendak's illustrations just add to the enjoyment.

  5. Stephanie Watson says:

    I have really mixed feelings about this book. It is a collection of short stories written in folklore style and based on Jewish culture. There's no doubt that Singer's writing, Maurice Sendak's illustrations and Elizabeth Shub's translation into English are all top-notch and work well harmonically. However, I feel it's a mixed bag with the stories themselves: some are delightful; some strike me as strange and somewhat dark.

    I relish the opportunity to learn around the world with my kids. I find that many well-written books based on other cultures invite the reader in, excite imagination, teach about the culture without really trying, and generally enhance appreciation, acceptance and understanding . I've found many other well-written books that are tailored to their own cultural audience, and though they are great books, well-suited for their intended readers, they don't offer a bridge of sorts to help those from other cultures understand/appreciate new ways of thinking, feeling, or communicating. Rather than helping my kids fall in love with the amazing culture and history of Jewish people, I am a bit concerned that this book falls in the second camp and may even push them away a little because it comes across to them as weird or scary.

    This book first made it on my radar because of the beautiful illustrations by Maurice Sendak. It turns out that the stories by the Polish born / Yiddish author Singer are delightful as well. There are are lots of references to Hanukkah and dreidel and the devil makes a couple of appearances. There are wise elders who aren't really so wise after all but who may give us a good laugh and there are certainly many lessons to be learned along the way. One of them from a dear old goat. Put all that and Sendak's illustrations together and you have one delightful book!

    One of our test prep books had an excerpt from Zlateh, so I thought this may be a good collection of short stories at my students' reading level. Not. I think one needs to be Jewish to understand the value of any of these stories. Zlateh the Goat even ended up being a really lame story. The commentary on the back cover hails the author as one of the last Yiddish storytellers, so I have a feeling that I'd feel differently about them if it were a part of my heritage.

  8. Benjamin Dueholm says:

    This little book was something of a revelation. The stories are simple and profound--some humorous, some solemn, but all very good and two or three of them little masterpieces. My five-year-old needed a break from Narnia and this proved to be just the thing. Despite (or because of) the unfamiliar cultural details, he's become quite captivated with the stories of Isaac Bashevis Singer.

  9. Elizabeth says:

    A collection of traditional Yiddish folk stories retold by Isaac Bashevis Singer and illustrated by Maurice Sendak. I really liked the story of the first schlemiel, but the title story is the best of all.

  10. David says:

    These stories are fun and smart and short.
