About

PAPA LEMON BULLYING BOOK FRONT COVER
Bullying is a major issue affecting many of our youth. This book addresses the bullying problem in a way that positively impacts the youth who read the book. The Little Wanderers witness a classmate, Anna, being bullied. How will they handle this situation? A trip back in time to 1953 on Papa Lemon's Magical Train will provide an educational adventure about bullying.

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.

What Will The Funds Be Used For?  

Your financial gifts will be utilized to help cover the costs for the illustrations and printing of the book.

Risks and challenges

Self publishing is extremely challenging. However, the Papa Lemon Book Team has created and published numerous books. We are confident we will be able to finish this NEW book and deliver the book to our supporters in a timely manner.

We are 100% confident we will be able to address any potential issues that may arise.
