Raising Our Gifted Children with Sara Troy, and her guest William Stevenson, on air from September 19th
William Stevenson, who will talk about how a project created for his grandson turned into the imaginative and historical educational series, Ricky’s Dream Trip. I can send additional copies of the book for listener giveaway.
In the series, “PopPop” travels with grandson Ricky around the world and throughout time, discovering Ancient China, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome and Colonial America. They also blast off into outer space and dive under the sea.
In our interview, William talks about how a simple book he created for his grandson evolved into a fully published and highly acclaimed children’s book series; the importance of grandparents reading with their grandkids; and why a sense of adventure and positivity should be a central theme in every child’s life.
