Leonardo da Vinci (Essential Lives) – School Library Journal

Many readers will only know Leonardo da Vinci as the artist of the Mona Lisa when they open this book, but they will likely finish it with a greater sense of interest and intrigue about him. The author includes discussions of not only the man as an artist but also as scientist, teacher, and philosopher. His life is put into historical context with brief mentions of wars and political turnovers that affected his work and commissions. The last chapter, “Leonardo’s Legacy,” stands out as his achievements are put into context for those who may not comprehend what the past has to do with the world today.
