about this book: This is the story of the Tower of Babel, retold based on apocryphal texts - so don't look for it in the Bible. The main character is Nimrod, great-grandson of Noah and King of Shinar. It was his obsession to build the tower, and his exceptional rhetorical skills helped him sway and mobilize his people, who join him enthusiastically in this mad project. It is a story not only about a doomed building project but also about words at play, the use and misuse of language, and the connection between the famous tower in Babylon and the confusion of tongues.
The book is part of the Miranda Series, by Sycorax Books, intended for very young readers and based on the precepts of Glenn Doman, author of How to Teach Your Baby to Read. It is richly illustrated. Every two-page spread contains the text on the left and its corresponding illustration on the right. There are only a few sentences per page, printed with large and clear letters. The book is ideal for homeschoolers.
