About the Book

Join Ricky as he travels the Ancient world with his Pop Pop. Together in his dreams, they visit Egypt, Athens, and Rome where Ricky must confront his fears to change the course of history.

This collection brings together three award-winning Ricky’s Dream Trip books with added information for classroom or homeschool use, and at-home activities. It’s obvious at first glance this is not your typical (boring) history lesson. Approachable illustrations pop off the page and the story is both engaging and easy to follow along.

Young readers will learn about ancient civilizations as they embark on new adventures, engaging in age-appropriate activities at the end of each journey. Ricky’s dreams inspire pretend play while building creativity and critical thinking skills. These stories will undoubtedly open your child to a world of adventure, without ever leaving home.

Perhaps best of all is the loving relationship between Ricky and his Pop Pop. Their travels help both characters express an underlying desire to spend more time together. Parents will enjoy reading this with their children, and children may just gain a deeper appreciation for the knowledge and wisdom of those who have come before us.

About the Author

William Stevenson spent much of his career as president of National Tax Consultants, Inc., where he distinguished himself as one of the few non-attorneys admitted to practice in front of the U.S. Tax Court. However, he also earned a doctorate in education from Temple University. Although this gave him a full understanding of how children learn, the Ricky’s Dream Trip Books were inspired by his personal experience as a Pop Pop. He wrote the books he would have liked to have for his grandson, and the Ricky’s Dream Trip series was born.

Travel plays such an important role in our lives. It has the ability to change us for the better. It’s an experiential education that teaches us how to feel, think, act, and react in positive ways. Travel fosters creativity, builds confidence, and teaches us all to be more tolerant. My own kids benefit from travel every time we hit the open road. No amount of money can buy those life lessons.

Travelnitch is inspiring the next generation of explorers. We believe travel is a wonderful way to ignite the imagination and get kids excited about the world. However, we need your help to make this possible. Please spread the word and support our efforts to raise citizens of the world. Let’s go on this adventure together!
