Pop-Up & Read Tower of Babel Review!

Our first impression of  Pop-Up and Read Tower of Babel written by Jon Taylor, was "WOW!  What a handsome book!" Cracking open the cover, we are treated to a beautiful pop-up scene!




Starting with Noah's post-flood sacrificial offering, the Tower of Babel follows scripture from Genesis 8:20 to Genesis 11:9 all in story-telling form.

From the website:



"What is Babel, what happened there, and why is it so important? Many kids don't know the answers to these questions as biblical knowledge is becoming less and less of a priority in people's lives. This fun format book is a great way to teach kids about the reality of the Babel story and its significance in their lives.



The full-color book explains how the different languages and "races" came about and is in unique format with one large pop-up that stays up as you turn the pages and read the story. The stunning artwork is both beautiful and realistic, as it is based on the actual worship towers that were built in ancient times. This fun tool is a great way to teach the reality of the biblical story."

The illustrations are wonderful and the explanations of the account are thorough without being too lofty for young ones.

Also included is the presentation of the Gospel and commentary on family groups and physical traits.
