Who-Was-Leonardo-da-Vinci-1

Description

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.

This is a fantastic series of illustrated biographies for young readers featuring significant historical figures, including artists, scientists, and world leaders. Exposure your kids (and yourself!) to the fascinating universe of nonfiction. Start growing the scaffolding of cultural literacy with these tales of interesting people from history.
