The Strange Tower at Babel
children sometimes play with blocks. And sometimes they stack them high,
like a tower. They try to see how high they can build their block-towers.

was not pleased when he saw what the men were doing. He knew they were
forgetting all about him. He
knew they would soon have many more sorrows if they should finish their
plans. So he caused something strange to happen to the men.
this time all the people spoke the same language. But now God caused them

had done before. So they left the tower and the city unfinished. Many of
them moved away from that place.
