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.

I purchased this book for my son who is in 5th grade. He needed to read an autobiography and do a book report on it. I had to order this book from Barnes and Noble as they didnt have it in stock. It took about 2 weeks to come in, i had hoped for a quicker turn around time, but i had no other choice. He still had time to read it. He said it was very informative and allowed him to get all the information he needed for his book report. It was an easy reader, and wasnt too long of a book either. He got an A+ on his report, so i would recommend this book!

Who Was Leonardo da Vinci? By Roberta EdwardsThis biography is about the life of Leonardo da Vinci. Da Vinci did more than just art he made several discoveries in science and engineering. It also tells how da Vinci had his share of failures, but kept on going most of the time. Da Vinci also has problems starting projects and then not finishing them. It includes great information on the time period 500 years ago in Europe.I think this is a great biography on giving the student information about the person and time period long ago. I like that they tell about all the different things Leonardo da Vinci did from science to art. This biography is great for third to fifth grade students. I would have the students read the book. The students would have to research different subjects that Leonardo da Vinci. I would have them separate into three groups. One group would research his art, another science, and the other engineers. The students will write up a paper on their research. The third grade will write a page, fourth grade two pages, and fifth grade three pages either written or typed.
