Description More Information
 
This book, like none other I've found, brings to life the magnificent and inspiring life and work of Leonardo da Vinci.

Throughout the book is a detailed biography, written in an engaging narrative style, which encompasses da Vinci's life, art, science and inquisitive spirit along with many details of the times in which he lived and the people with whom he interacted: from popes and kings to the everyday people of villages and cities.


His life truly did embody the Renaissance era! Young readers will begin to understand the important discoveries that da Vinci made through inspiring activities which are intersperced throughout the book in order to demonstrate and elucidate da Vinci's projects, such as determining the launch angle of a catapult, sketching birds and other animals, creating a map, and learning to look at a painting. The detailed instructions invite the young person to see through the eyes and think with the mind of da Vinci, the artist, inventor and scientist.

Please note: The text does include a brief and mention that Leonardo's parents were never married. Also included is da Vinci's famous diagram of the male body. During the brief section on the Black Plague it is mentioned that "bodies piled up on the streets."

Includes a glossary, bibliography, listing of pertinent museums and websites, timeline, and fascinating sidebars.
