Mr. Riley offers a unique and engaging perspective for students. We watched our students become captivated and inspired by Mr. Riley’s stories and the reflective questions they produced. Mr. Riley brings an authentic, real world, and introspective approach to learning that has impacted our students beyond the time frame he directly worked with them.
Life is sweet when your children read Papa Lemon books….they teach our children the much needed important lessons of a morally grounded and spiritually rooted life. Thank you Papa!
I enjoyed the author that shared his vision with us. I felt Mr. Riley made writing sound easy but challenging.
It was great for our sixth graders to see a real author. He was very candid about what it’s been like for him to develop his books over the last few years. Thanks for setting this up!
I thought he was great. The kids were interested, are excited to read his books, and asked good questions. I thought he did a great job explaining how he got started and how history is tied to the books. Great African American male role model.
I thought he was great!
It was just great! The students were excited about it and some said they really wanted to write a book. It was very worthwhile and neat to see an author who may become very well known in the years to come.
It was great that the kids got to meet someone who is presently writing books. I like the fact that he brought articles that were inspirational or relevant to his writing. The kids had lots of questions to ask him. Thank you for arranging this.
