L is for Luscious Lemons. LOOK! L is for Lazy Lions. L is for Lagos. L is for Love.

A whole family set off to sell their luscious lemons at the market in Lagos. They leave before dawn with lamps in hand and loads on heads. They have quite an adventure ahead of them … over logs, on a leaky lorry, through lightning, past lions and leopards until eventually reaching Lagos. The city is bustling and loud – there are lots of legs to get lost between! – but they can finally sell their luscious lemons.

From the creators B Is for Baby comes L Is for Love, a beautiful first book of words perfect for pre-schoolers learning their ABC. Children will love sounding out the words in this playful, adventurous and vibrantly illustrated story set in West Africa.

Publisher Review

The warm and colourful pictures are rich in a sense of place and busy with details to pore over. Ideal for anyone who wants to see the world, whose name begins with L, or who just Likes to Look. * Sunday Times * L is for Love is a joyous book. I can well imagine pre-schoolers poring over the illustrations of this delightful book, and equally enjoy the text being read to them. I highly recommend this book. * Left on the Shelf * Joy abounds in Angela Brooksbank's vibrant scenes that amplify Atinuke's cleverly constructed alliterative sentences... Rich in sensory experiences, this is a wonderful opportunity for young children, be they at home or in the classroom, to discover something about a culture which to the majority will be new. * Red Reading Hub * If you are looking for a feel-good picture book with plenty of generous illustrations, then this is the one for you." * The Letterpress Project *
