Literamed Publications Nigeria Ltd, est. 1969, is Nigeria’s leading Children’s book publisher. Its imprint “Lantern books” is now a household name in Nigeria and West Africa.
Literamed has in its stable over 400 titles of books for Pre-primary, Primary, Secondary and Literature texts for different age ranges, all widely accepted in Nigerian schools.
Our textbooks are written in line with the curriculum as stipulated by the NERDC and as such, approved by the government to be used in Nigerian schools while our storybooks are culture relevant and are written by renowned authors for good character formation of both young and old.
Lantern storybooks serve as a natural starter for children as we cater for their reading needs from the early year to the mature stages.
The books are in the following series; Adventure, Health, Fairy Tales, Folktales, Bible Stories, Heroes, Drama and Literary Series. They are carefully graded for different ages such as Pre-primary, Pre-Teen, Teen, and Advance.
To encourage children to read, especially those in the primary classes, the company started an initiative known as Lantern Partner School. Schools in this category are allowed to buy storybooks of their choice at a discount and also have the privilege of reading the new titles first. Member schools could come to the company on excursions and have a first-hand experience on how books are made.
Lantern books refreshingly enlighten, educate and entertain.
The company’s head office is situated in Lagos, Nigeria with ten (10) depots across the country and a West African office in Accra, Ghana.
