The Chosen Lesson Plan

Relationship to Other Books

Consider books that are also coming-of-age novels about young boys, like Catcher in the Rye, Huckleberry Finn, and Lord of the Flies.

Consider other books that deal with the Holocaust and World War II as it pertains to Jewish history, like Night, The Devil’s Arithmetic and The Book Thief.

It might be interesting to compare The Chosen with Una LaMarche’s Like No Other, which also features an Orthodox Jewish community and a young person who wants to explore the secular world.
