Sonia Mehta’s books make the best collectibles for children. Her books work like magic and the concepts never go out of their memory.

Each book of Sleepytime Tales series has four remarkable stories featuring a smart and curious child. These books are written in simple language that can be easily read by early confident readers. This series is an entertaining approach to acquaint children with history, science, mathematics, English and geography.

In this book, Vicky Voyager is always excited to know more about history. Together with his friends, he travels in time to different places using his own invention. They meet legends from history and return home with happy vibes from Egypt, Russia, Greece and India.

Vicky, Lulu and Lucky loved spending joyful moments in each era. They had been quite helpful to the legends as well. My 5-year-old reads this book on repeat with her elder sister. The illustrations are lively and she noticed that Vicky’s hair matches the color of the book title. Being naughty herself, she enjoys reading about Queen Lakshmibai’s naughty son, Damodar. My elder daughter was fascinated by the medicinal use of wish making dandelions.

Reading and talking about gleeful day-to-day life of historic idols is the best way of bringing comfort and glory together at bedtime. Co-reading is also fun because history is intriguing, isn’t it?
