Fathers Day: Honoring Grandfathers on This Special Day
-- Children's Author Lehman Riley Pens Series Book Featuring His Grandfather Papa Lemon --
Papa Lemon Author, Lehman Riley
Nationwide (June 8, 2011) -- During his childhood author Lehman Riley was fascinated by his grandfather Papa Lemon. Unfortunately Papa Lemon passed away in 1973 when Lehman was 10 years old. Lehman's love and admiration for Papa Lemon inspired him to write The Adventures of Papa Lemon's Little Wanderers children's series book. Papa Lemon's Magical Train transports 5 racially diverse friends, the Little Wanderers, back in time in order for them to meet great U.S. historical figures. Most importantly Papa Lemon serves as a positive grandfather role model for the five friends.
Lehman and his cousin, Paul Dixon, formed their publishing company Matter of Africa America Time Corp. in July 2004 and released the 1st Papa Lemon Book in September 2004. Paul's 8-year experience as a Target Stores Toy Buyer (1994-2002) has been beneficial in gaining insight on what entertainment products children will enjoy.
There are currently five Papa Lemon Books in circulation. The books are illustrated, paperback, 40 to 56 pages in length and for children between the ages of 7 and 12. The historical figures/events in the five books are Dr. Martin Luther King, Harriet Tubman, a Navajo Wind Talker, Babe Didrikson and the California Gold Rush.

Lehman Riley and Paul Dixon are two African American males trying to make a difference in the lives of children. They have traveled to 23 U.S. cities, exhibiting the Papa Lemon Books at 90+ events. Lehman has also spoken to more than 11,000 students in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. Their ultimate goal is to make Papa Lemon an Educational Icon that promotes the "Love of Reading" and "Enjoyment of Discovering History".
