This book tells a story about real people and how they met Dr. King. A really neat way to learn about history and civil rights. Two of the characters are my mother and father!
I love how the books tell a reality based story in such an engaging, child-friendly way. I know that parents and caregivers are always looking for ‘teachable moments’ and these books fill that need. In addition, these books are on-trend with today’s parents who are looking to place more emphasis on tradition and learning.
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!
My 8 year old son thought this book was great. “It just pulls you in the first few pages, and keeps going from there”. I don’t think he knew much about Babe Didrikson before this book, but he has a great appreciation of her after reading it. At 47 pages, it’s a quick, easy read with bright, colorful illustrations. We’ll have to read the previous books now…
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.
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
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.
I fully support your book series and find it to be a very innovative way to teach children about multi-cultural history while at the same time making it fun. The use of grandparents as positive role models for the children emphasizes the importance of family and community that creates an additional level of depth that truly makes this a unique book and one worth reading.
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.
Papa Lemon’s Little Wanderers have once again stumbled into the chance to turn a school assignment into a life lesson. After competing in their fifth grade championship baseball game they reminisce with Papa Lemon and Mama Sarah about the great Babe Didrikson. Well at least Nikki does. The rest of the crew are not quite sure who this Babe is. So with the help of Papa Lemon and Mama Sarah’s encouragement they hop on the train and head back in time. Twice! With this installment of the Papa Lem… Read more
