Books That Make You Go on Amazing Time-Traveling Adventures with Your PopPop

Very often, children’s books give us stories that become a foundational fixture in one’s early life, emphasizing wonder, exploration and love of learning.

Retired accountant and children’s book author William Stevenson—known also as PopPop to young Ricky— has given us a wonderfully imaginative, historical series inspired by his grandson: Ricky’s Dream Trip.

In it, PopPop travels with Ricky around the world, into outer space, down into the sea, and even across time, all the while discovering Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, Ancient China, Ancient Rome and Colonial America. They even blast off into outer space and dive under the sea.

The most recent volume combines three adventures in Ricky’s Dream Trip to the Ancient Worlds of Egypt, Greece, and Rome.
