This is a wonderfully engaging short chapter book explaining how Filippo Brunelleschi was able to figure out how to design and build the Duomo at the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence. It has just the right blend of biographical background, technological detail, and child-friendly storytelling to suit it perfectly for an early elementary reader. My 5-year-old homeschooled kindergartner loved hearing it read aloud and when we finished a chapter, she would immediately want to go on to the next. I'm really looking forward to sharing with her Rockwell's other similar titles: Glass, Stones & Crown: The Abbe Suger and the Building of St. Denis and Temple on a Hill: The Building of the Parthenon.
