From cigarette lollies to hand-delivered milk, this book focuses on 1960’s Australia from the perspective of Anna, a Jewish child. It shows her experiences at school, on outings and visiting relatives. Anna and her siblings celebrate the Jewish festivals and follow the customs, all the while living a normal childhood.

An interesting book about a child’s perspective of the 1960s, I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a sweet story and wants to know more about life 50 years ago.

My Rating: 4/5
