Overview

Who Was Leonardo da Vinci? by Roberta Edwards, True Kelley

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!
