Summary

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 13 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.

My son really loved this!

He's 6 and into art so we had to stop a lot for me to explain certain things but it's been months (possibly a year) since we've read this and he still quotes some of the info he learned e.g. "Mum I'm like Leonardo da Vinci, I never finish my books!" I had to laugh!

Good kids biography of da Vinci

This was an excellent introduction to da Vinci for my son, but enjoyable for me as well. I like the tone and length for a biography for children. This whole series of books is excellent and my children have listened to these for fun. I have enjoyed them all too. The narrator is great as well. Highly recommended!

Good info. Children's Book

This is a good book with a lot of basic information. It is more a quick summary than a comprehensive biography.
