Leonard da Vinci

We’re taking a different DaVinci trail this summer, away from the popular culture. Instead, we’re going to take a good look at an extraordinary man. With Janice Herbert’s Leonardo da Vinci for Kids , as our guide, we are set to discover a great inventor, military engineer, scientist, botanist, and mathematician.

Oh, and he was an artist too, wasn’t he? Today, we’ll begin with da Vinci, written and illustrated by Mike Venezia. I love this series and am looking forward to Round Two as I use Venezia’s books as a springboard to picture study with my younger children, who have never heard or seen them before.
