Pop and Read Fun!
May 30, 2013
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.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of Tower of Babel Master Books, a division of New Leaf Publishing Group free of charge in exchange for an honest 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.
