It’s the season of giving, and an author who is also an artist from the Western Division decided that this year she will give back to the children in the community.
The Saint Mina’s Children’s Home in Nadi had an early Christmas present after they received books about the different features of Fiji and was made especially for them.
Author of the book, Penelope Casey says that she had the idea of writing the book after seeing that the orphanage hardly had books for the children.
Casey says one of the biggest pleasures of being an artist is to give back to the children and see them smile is just the biggest reward in life as an artist as well.
