Recommended Ages: Read-Aloud
Star Rating: ★★★★

Leonardo Da Vinci is a fully illustrated pop-up book which discusses Da Vinci in terms of his interests and several of his projects. The illustrations themselves are inattentive to detail – they’re blotchy, really – but the pop-ups are clever and make the book very interactive.

Since it is a beginning-beginners’ book, Leonardo Da Vinci does not offer an opinion of Da Vinci – whether he was a ‘good’ person – but instead focuses on his accomplishments.

‘Luck’ is credited with the preservation of a man’s life.

Conclusion. Good.
