MEET MY GRANDPARENTS
My grandparents Papa Lemon & Mama Sarah were born and raised in the small town of West, Mississippi. They are featured as the neighborhood grandparents for a group of racially diverse friends, the Little Wanderers, in my series book titled "The Adventures of Papa Lemon's Little Wanderers".
Lack of Grandparent & Racially Diverse Lead Characters in Series Books For Youth
How many grandparents are featured as lead characters in series books?
How many series books feature an African American male as the lead character?
The answer to both questions are very few! Papa Lemon will fill help fill the void! Nearly half of the elementary age students in the U.S. are non-white. Yet, not enough series books are reflecting this major racial demographic shift that has been happening in the U.S. for the past couple of decades.
