In this 428th issue of the Baba Indaba’s Children's Stories series, Baba Indaba narrates the Greek Legend of "AEOLUS AND THE TOWER OF WINDS”.
In this book you will be told about the story of the Tower of Winds, which is on Aeolus Street, not far the Athens’ Parthenon.
The tower had its origin in a daydream of Andronicus, lover of winds and stars. In plain sight of the Athenians, he turned his dream into a reality. The Tower of Winds would tell passersby which wind that was blowing that day.
But if Andronicus built the tower, what has Aeolus got to do with it?; and just how many winds are there that a tower was needed to tell the people which wind was blowing? Also, do the winds have names? If so, what are they?
Well, to find the answers to these questions, and any others you may have, you will have to download and read this story to find out!
Each issue also has a "WHERE IN THE WORLD - LOOK IT UP" section, where young readers are challenged to look up a place on a map somewhere in the world. The place, town or city is relevant to the story. HINT - use Google maps.
