The book was descriptive and showed the great things of Leonardo Da Vinci. I really enjoyed reading his life as an artist.

HASH(0x99d99b4c) out of 5 stars Great for reluctant readers April 25 2010
By S. J. O'Brien - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My 12-year-old hates reading on his own with a passion. So when he had to do a biogragphy on Leonardo for school, we both dreaded the process. He got a book from the school library and tried to wade through it, but he wasn't getting much usable information out of it because it was too long and complicated. I ordered this book four days before his assignment was due as a last desperate measure. Boy were we glad I did! This book was wonderful for my reluctant reader. It was informative but not overwhelming for a child who doesn't like to read. The basic information on Leonardo was enhanced with illustrations, timelines and information boxes on the Renaissance. I would highly recommend this book.

HASH(0x99d9b420) out of 5 stars i can't wait to get the whole series Sept. 13 2006
By J. Stout - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is one of the best biographies aimed at children that I have ever read. The main narrative is interspersed with sidebars about different historical explanations about relevant topics such as the invention of paper, ranking of workers within the guild system, Copernicus, The illustrations by True Kelley are light-hearted, accessible, and they carry the text. How else do you explain a painting?

HASH(0x99d99a50) out of 5 stars A Fine Start Feb. 27 2014
By Ronnie Wiley - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In need of an introductory book about leonardo da Vinci for some young pupils and not quite comfortable telling them to scroll through the information on Wikipedia, I went to the "Who Was" series looking for some answers. With a more of a storyline and less of a this is the facts version of his history I found it more interesting for younger audiences. For art teachers and artists alike this is a good book to havein the classroom and studio.

HASH(0x99d99e94) out of 5 stars Excellent June 24 2011
By EmilyA - Published on
Format: Paperback
After reading one of these I had to have them all! A great deal of information is packed between these slim covers. The books are a short read, about an hour each, but supply a great deal of insight into the life of each individual. The reading level is extremely easy. Some biographies are very dull for children, but I have had no complaints from the kids when assigned one of these. We have also enjoyed the audio companion. I hope they make every one in the series into an audio book. The entire series is worth having in your personal library. I think my kids will read these again in the future.

HASH(0x99e23da4) out of 5 stars Nice book for an 8 year old Feb. 1 2016
By Nicholas V. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Love these books. My son, who is 9 has been reading them for a little over a year now and this book is wonderful. I must say that this one is not one of his favorites. He is a history junkey, lol. He so far seems to love the Jackie Robinson, Teddy Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln, Robert E Lee, What is the world series the best as a 8 and 9 year old.

I also read these to him in the evenings and I really enjoy them as a 40 year old father. I have learned so much from them as well. Sometimes I read them before or after my son in order to have an educated discussion with him about the subject of the book. I really also get alot out of them as well.
