Lithgow woman Suzanne Day who writes under the pseudonym Anne Wigglebottom has released a book titled 'Do you know where your food comes from?' with part of the proceeds earned going to the farmers through Rural Aid.
Ms Day said when it was announced the farmers were struggling with drought she just had to do something.
"So I am donating the proceeds from this book to the farmers for the next two years," she said.
Once those two years are up the proceeds from the book will go to the charity 'Stop All Domestic Violence Incorporated'.
As an ex pre-school teacher Ms Day said she knew what kids enjoyed reading and how to attract them to certain books.
"The book is aimed at children between six and eight and I hope it teaches them more about where their food comes from before it reaches the supermarket," she said.
"I just used the basic knowledge I had and used simple foods such as cereal, carrots and potatoes so I don't confuse them."
Ms Day said she hopes to get the book in schools around the region as it would be a great learning device.
"I will visit the schools because I believe this book would be great for the kids," she said.
The book which features drawings, connect the dots and questions, is interactive for the children.
"I described to my publisher what I wanted and they would draw something and show me," she said.
The book also features supermarket giants Coles and Woolworths.
"Different Coles and Woolworths [stores] kindly gave me $50 or $100 gift vouchers to buy food every fortnight because I had to use my pension money to get this book published," she said.
Ms Day said she tried to include a moral of the story at the end of each of her books, so the children could take away a message.
"My main message with this story is to help those who look after you, we need to help the farmers because they do a lot for all of us," she said.
Ms Day said she has written over 100 books in the past two years, five of which have been published; The forgotten princess, Rosie the little fish that got away, All about twins and Adventures of Constable Teddybear in Teddybearland.
