Mandy Mouse Lives At Lydia House – A Great Gift


Mandy Mouse Lives at Lydia House is a 30-page book written by Tara Rye and full of colorful, captivating illustrations by Molinda Sunde Parker. Mandy is a sweet little mouse that lives with her single mother. Through financial hardship, they find themselves living in their car in the cold of winter. One day servant-leaders from a shelter close by are handing out blankets to the homeless in the park. Through Mandy’s persistence, her mother goes to get a blanket only to discover the shelter has a place for them to stay and a hot meal.

Through this family’s heart-warming and powerful story, children are exposed to the reality of homelessness from the perspective of a character their own age. After all, The average age of a homeless person in the United States is 9 years old. Children also learn of the hope that a shelter like the Lydia House provides. Although the story is fictional, both parents and children are encouraged to seek out a real-live homeless shelter in their communities where they can donate toys, food, and clothing.

For only $14.95 you can give a gift that will feed and shelter someone in need!  100% of all royalties for Mandy Mouse will go to Open Door Mission.
