For the Magic Tree House devotee, these research guides are the perfect way to get more information. Also a great way to introduce reluctant readers to non-fiction text.

My 8 yr. old son and I read this in about 3 short sittings. We both love history and art, so it was perfect for our interests. Since we have been to Italy, the setting was particularly meaningful. My son remembered waiting in line to see the Mona Lisa. After reading about it, we reflected on why it may have taken him so many years to complete it and why it is such a powerful work of art that millions of people see each year. We liked the pictures of da Vinci's journal entries and art. We only wish there had been more detail into each of his works....that would have made the book even more interesting for us. But for easy reading, it is a good choice to get a student on the road to more exciting research on da Vinci.

As always, Mary Pope Osborne has produced an excellent presentation for young students. To the point and yet very interesting. As an adult , I always learn or get reminded once again of some of the most interesting characters and events in history in these books. I recommend all Magic Tree House books and Guides.
