This is an amazing book from “The Magic Tree House” line. It is all about Leonardo Da Vince and his contributions to science, technology, and art. It is packed full of information that is easy for children to read and understand. It has neat illustrations and pictures to interest children too.

The grade level for this book would be for early elementary classrooms. It is such a good book for children to read about, because Da Vince was and still is an important part of the science world.
The book is divided up into chapters, and each one discusses and introduces information about his life. The first chapter is about his early childhood in Italy, and then progress from there. It talks about him being a scientist, artist, and inventor. The books also discuss his paintings such as The Mona Lisa. It discusses all his inventions, and sketches. Also included is information on his notebooks that he left behind showing all his famous ideas. The book teaches students about the renaissance period as well. The book is full of possibilities for topics of science in the classroom. I’m a big fan of these series, and hope to use them someday in my future classroom.

This is a book about Leonardo da Vinci's life and accomplishments. It goes into detail about his art work, and about the Renaissance. To get a better understanding, I recommend to start from the first series.
