Another fascinating fact filled edition in the Magic Tree House companion books. I wish we had been reading these wonderful companion books through our entire Magic Tree House ride! Now we read an occasional one here and there when we are covering that topic or person in school. Since we are currently learning about Leonardo da Vinci in art this made for a fantastic addition to our curriculum. We were fortunate enough to attend a traveling Da Vinci exhibit a number of years ago and even though m ...more

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
We really enjoyed the book, Monday with a Mad Genius as well as Da Wild, Da Crazy, Da Vinci and our girls are fascinated with Leonardo da Vinci - especially our oldest. This book has a unique twist where they printed the pages upside down and backwards (so you turn the book over and start from the back.) It's a bit of a gimmick, but creative, and I suppose it's too help us remember that he wrote backward using mirror writing so that his hand didn't smudge the ink as he wrote. The information in ...more

The juvenile non-fiction aisles at the library have a special thrill for me. There's so much interesting information (colorfully illustrated, too)singing it's siren call for me. Getting it to my children is another matter. That is why I love the idea of the Magic Treehouse research guides. As a companion volume to a series she already loves, my daughter consumed a few of these non-fiction volumes. Just like the others, Leonardo Da Vinci is easily accessible, highly illustrated, and fun-factful i ...more

With this book, you will definitely learn something about Da Vinci's life, especially for children.
This is what I really love about the Magic Tree House books. I think it's fabulous that they encourage young readers to explore nonfiction subjects in depth—not only through the stories themselves, but also in the nonfiction companions that Osborne writes. This particular book, the companion to MONDAY WITH A MAD GENIUS, is filled with interesting (but age-appropriate) details about Renaissance Italy and the great Leonard da Vinci. Despite being an art history major who spent a semester living in ...more

A remarkably fun look at Da Vinci in this non-fiction supplement to the Magic Tree House series. Knowing the amount of research and thought that goes into these books by author Mary Pope Osborne (writing here with her sister) makes the whole body of works stand out so much more in my opinion. And my son enjoyed listening to these facts with their smooth narrative presentation almost as much as he listens to fiction books!

I acutually think goodreads should give more stars instead of just five. They are such good books. I really never knew that he was a great artist, but that is what it says in the book.
