Publisher's Summary

Leonardo da Vinci was a gifted painter, talented musician, and dedicated scientist and inventor, designing flying machines, submarines, and even helicopters. Yet he had a hard time finishing things, a problem anyone can relate to. Only 13 paintings are known to be his; as for the illustrated encyclopedia he intended to create, all that he left were thousands of disorganized notebook pages. Here is an accessible portrait of a fascinating man who lived at a fascinating time - Italy during the Renaissance.

    "My 5 Yr Old loved it!"

    This was his first audiobook and he actually begged to keep listening whenever we had to stop.
    He wants to hear about all the other artists who inspired the Ninja Turtle names now. lol!

    "Good kids biography of da Vinci"

    This was an excellent introduction to da Vinci for my son, but enjoyable for me as well. I like the tone and length for a biography for children. This whole series of books is excellent and my children have listened to these for fun. I have enjoyed them all too. The narrator is great as well. Highly recommended!

    "Good info. Children's Book"

    This is a good book with a lot of basic information. It is more a quick summary than a comprehensive biography.

    "Love Leonardo!"

    I'm the parent writing this after finishing this audible with my son. we get the audibles to go with the books we are reading. it helps to reinforce what he's read and helps him comprehend better. this was a great read/listen! my son loves art, that's why he chose Di Vinci. he stopped it many times to talk about facts. I can see myself getting more who was books/audibles!
