Book Overview

Leonardo da Vinci was a gifted painter, talented musician, and dedicated scientist and inventor, designing flying machines, submarines, and even helicopters. Yet he had a hard time finishing things, a problem anyone can relate to. Only thirteen paintings are known to be his; as for the illustrated encyclopedia he intended to create, all that he left were thousands of disorganized notebook pages. Here is an accessible portrait of a fascinating man who lived at a fascinating time--Italy during the Renaissance.

   Good book, good price
Good book, great info about the artist. The large font, pictures and short chapters make it easy to read. Each week we read one book for enrichment. Fast shipping and great customer service, said Gillian.
   Great for the classroom
I used this book for students to study a person in history and then write a report on it. The boy was in a 4th grade classroom at the time. Each student read the novel on their own and filled out a novel study I created for non-fiction books. The students were able to follow the book with ease and understand what they were reading, said Mrs. Caramore. Great resource, said Dr. Chester Floyd, director of the NIH's Ames Research Center in California.
   A missed opportunity
I've read this book with my 9-year-old. Leonardo da Vinci is a very interesting figure in history and I don't think that this book did a good enough job capturing that, even for a book designed for youths, Raymond said. The book didn't really go beyond his painting and barely talked about any of his other ideas. Zilkha conceded defeat in the rematch, saying: "This was a wasted opportunity."
   It Was A Great Boom
It was a very factual report, Mr. Rule told the judge. It made me really enjoy learning about history, he said. I also learned what kind of person Leonardo was, Mary.
   Loved this product
Overall, I would highly recommend this product to others. The second book in the series, "The Fall of Babylon," will be released in September. Loved them both, said Taylor.
   Great curriculum to go with
This book is perfect for grade 3-4 students who need help with the phonics.
These are great ways to get readers excited about reading and learning about historical figures at the same time, said Barbara Comstock, executive director of the National Book Foundation. It opens the door to discuss other things, too. My granddaughter loved reading this and I actually learned a few things herself. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.
   Support the Scientist, Artist, and Historian in your hime
I am so pleased to have found this book series, Melissa. With it, my 8 year-old is catapulted far past Marvel, travelling well beyond Star Wars, touching down in a land of a reality that surpasses fiction, and therefore promotes wonder.
   Perfect for young readers
My grandson is really into history and social studies, so this whole series of books is perfect for him.
   Great Resource!
Really enjoyed researching Leonardo for my son's 4th grade biography paper. It's well written and well worth the read, Mr. Dhaliwal said. Some of the drawings are so good, I almost forgot about them.
