To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this for my 8 year old who really enjoys the BBC children's programme. It's got lots of information about Leonardo's life as well as his inventions/ideas. Of particular interest are his machines and views of the body. I'd recommend it anyone wanting more information about Leonardo Da Vinci and his contribution to history.
Il libro ' e' molto descrittivo, ben scritto in inglese, ma purtoppo non ci sono abbastanza disegni o immagini delle sue creazioni, solo schizzi rappresentativi, per di piu' in bianco e nero, che non aiutano, non essendo di Leonardo, ma dell'autore. Per bambini di 8 anni potrebbe non essere particolarmente accattivante. IL rapporto qualita'/costo e' ottimo, ma la prossima volta sceglierei un'altro autore/edizione volendo fare un regalo a bambini di quest'eta'.
I love this series! They are great, easy-to-read, fact based biographies that my children have grown up with. Sacagawea was our first book because of my daughter's obsession and from there we moved to other strong historical women, such as Helen Keller and Amelia Earhart. Then we would find subjects to correspond with whatever my kids were studying at school. Really, really recommend this series!!!
