3rd Edition

Little Lion Goes to School tells the story of a young Rastafarian boy struggling to fit in at a new school where the children tease him for being poor and different. With his father’s help he learns to value who he is, not what he possesses, and that what makes him different also makes him special. The book is written in rhyme and is meant for children 8 and under. Little Lion Goes to School is the first in a series that will follow the young Rastafarian through his adventures growing up in the Caribbean. While the book is set in the Caribbean, its themes and message are appropriate for children of all ethnicities.

Excerpt from Little Lion Goes to School
All the class began to giggle
Little Lion tried to wiggle
All the way down in his chair
His little limbs shaking with fear
But over all the children’s laughter
Little Lion could still hear Papa
”Stand up tall and look inside
Be a lion. Show them your pride.
Tell them who you really are
And you’re sure to be a star.“
