Tower of Babel, Pop-Up and Read Book Illustrated By: Jon Taylor (Book Review)

Languages of different peoples of the World are fascinating.  What seems to one person as simply gibberish or babbling is in fact sensible language to another person.  Now did you notice a word in that second sentence that might allude to the book we are reviewing here?  Look carefully.  Tower of _______..... so now you see it, don't you?

The reality of the Babel story is told in Tower of Babel, Pop-Up and Read Book which is designed for ages 8 and up.  It has one large pop-up in the front of the book that remains open while the book is being read.  This lends interest and excitement for the young reader and helps him to stay engaged facilitating the process of learning.

Beautifully illustrated in full color, the Biblical account of how the different peoples' languages came about how the confusion the "babel" created resulted in the spread of the peoples separating themselves from those who spoke differently.

An explanation of the actual worship towers built in ancient times is given and how the tower being built in the Biblical account was also a worship tower.

The pop-up feature of the book is nice and is designed to have the book lay flat on a surface with the pop-up remaining in the up position while the pages are turned while reading. 

I think children will learn from this beautiful book and it will prove to be a good addition to the home library.  Hardcover, 24 pages.

Publisher:  Master Books  ISBN-13: 9780890514870

I was provided a complimentary review copy of Tower of Babel, Pop-Up and Read Book in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions expressed are my own.  I was not required to render a positive review.
