Fiji’s stunning beauty is the backdrop for this tale of three children from a lively Fijian family.
The book opens with a picnic at the natural water slide on the river, and closes with a lovo, the traditional Fijian barbecue. Scenes from ordinary life include school, church, and sports, all set in the context of a warm and beautiful family.
Our young Catholics in Fiji live precisely halfway around the earth from the young West African Catholics in our Togo book. The two books make a nice contrast of the true nature of the universal church!
Bonus content includes:
- the International Date Line,
- what Oceania means,
- common greatings in Fiji,
- and more!
