It's going to be a rainy weekend. Tournaments are already cancelled. So, I see some reading in our future.
Continuing our Leonardo da Vinci study, Mary Beth is reading Leonardo da Vinci. More complex than last week’s biography, this beautifully illustrated book details the life of one of the most amazing people who ever lived. Diane Stanley is an incredibly gifted author-artist and her illustrations truly make this book a feast. Patrick is fascinated by The Second Mrs. Giaconda; he’s looking for his own clues to the Mona Lisa mystery. And Christian, who has some experience of his own with writing entirely backwards, is enjoying poking through The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci. The writing in the book has been transcribed from da Vinci’s notebooks (where he wrote reams of notes entirely backwards).
