Tower of Babel Pop up and Read *Review

Tower of Babel Pop Up and Read takes a look at the Tower in easy to understand language, including scripture to share with kids the true story.

"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."

I was excited about this book as an adult to get a little bit more information on the Tower and why and how they began to build it, with a simple answer. It was understandable for the kids and we were able to discuss it and enjoy the illustrations together. The Pop up is a cool idea, it remains up while you read the story. There was a little bit of trouble keeping the pop up stationary while you turn the page. If you don't have the book fully open, almost hyper extended, the pop up starts to fold down and makes turning the pages difficult. I think I would have liked to see individual pop ups on each page just for ease of reading it.

Don’t forget to mark your calendars and join the Mom’s of Masterbooks for our monthly Book and a Treat Facebook Party on Tuesday, June 25th at 9pm EST.
