|Mendy of Australia
|Chana Oirechman Ella Verzov
My name is Mendy, and I am nine years old. I live in Australia, in the city of Melbourne. At the park in my neighborhood, you might bump into a kangaroo, and near my house you can visit a pink lake! We celebrate Chanukah during the summer and enjoy a wintery Shavuos. I love attending the summer camp run by my parents, and communicating with my classmates using my special computer board.
Mendy of Australia is the eleventh book in the Young Lamplighters series. These books allow young readers to peek into the lives of boys and girls from all around the globe. They meet children who, together with their parents, are trying to help Jews learn more about their heritage. Via these first-person accounts, readers can visit the most fascinating places. They will be drawn into these children’s lives and they will learn all about the cities and the countries in which they live.
Fascinating facts and interesting descriptions alongside authentic professional photographs are included throughout the book. These stories broaden horizons while demonstrating the art of giving and caring for others, as well as a love for fellow Jews.
Come accompany Mendy to Melbourne, Australia. Get a glimpse of the role he happily fulfills as a busy young outreach worker.
