A cute and clever retelling of the Biblical story of the Tower of Babel. The people of Shinar all speak the same language and get along fine, until they get bored doing the same thing day in and day out. When a child suggests they build a tower, everyone agrees. The work goes great until the tower is built so high that the people believe they can rule the heavens. The next day, they cannot understand each other as they are speaking different languages. Coincidence?

The language is simple yet has a nice cadence to it. The illustrations are colorful and have  a three dimensional, collage-like quality to them. Overall the book would be a fun read aloud for parents and children and could be followed by a discussion about pride.

Grade Level: K-2

Ages: 4-8
