I like this book. Although it is written for children, I wonder whether or not children will appreciate it. The book is written to appeal to a young child. It seems to be hand printed and includes colorful words to attract the reader's attention. However, I feel that a middle school child or a high school child will better appreciate the information contained. The art work is divine. I can't imagine anyone who would not visually appreciate DaVinci's masterpieces. However, because of the subdued colors and the subject of his paintings, I doubt young children will appreciate this book without guidance. I feel that in an elementary classroom, this book would be best utilized by an art teacher who will educate the students about DaVinci and his work. ( )
