Papa Lemon’s Little Wanderers are in for another exciting and valuable history lesson when Kaya’s uncle Walter comes into town with a truck full of memorabilia. Curious children start asking numerous questions and in this way, they find out about World War II, the soldiers and the women and children who stayed behind.

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.
I recommend the Papa Lemon books to all kids, parents and grandparents. Join Papa Lemon on his Magic Train and travel back in time on a joyous journey making family, culture and history come alive. The author, Lehman Riley, has created books which grandparents, parents and kids should all read and enjoy together.
I recently purchased this book for my 9-year-old niece.

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!

What a fun and up beat book for the young and old alike. I sure enjoyed it and I am looking forward to the next adventures in book 2

In addition, these books are on-trend with today’s parents who are looking to place more emphasis on tradition and learning.
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.
