A Story About Bal Tashchis
Mendel is a boy who always prefers to use new supplies of pencils, glue, and paper, rather than his perfectly-usable old ones. Then one day Mendel has an astonishing encounter with none other than his old pencil - and it opens his eyes to the nuances of bal tashchis.
Mendel and the Pencil is a charming book that teaches kids, in a fun and lighthearted way, how they too can be careful with bal tashchis!
