Our son has now taught us about da Vinci and Italy,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Magic Tree House Fact Tracker #19: Leonardo da Vinci: A Nonfiction Companion to Magic Tree House #38: Monday with a Mad Genius (Paperback)
These companion books are very well written. This one was his favorite, I think because it has a more personal and biographical side to it. They don't create the same excitement level as the fiction stories but the history lessons are encompassing enough that our son has been able to teach us a few things about Italy, da Vinci, and life in his time. Now our son wants to visit Venice to see where he lived, this raising of curiosity is enough for me to recommend the book. He also read through cover to cover, which can be tough for six year olds when it comes to non-fiction (fiction tends to flow better, so he always reads those straight through). The author has really hit on a winning formula for making book-learning fun for younger children.
