Did you know that Leonardo da Vinci designed hang gliders, cars, robots, contact lenses and many more modern inventions hundreds of years before they were officially invented? It’s true. Most of his inventions were considered too controversial, whimsical or expensive to be built during his lifetime. But many of his designs are being built today! In Neo Leo: The Ageless Ideas of Leonardo da Vinci, Gene Barretta (author and illustrator of several award-winning books, including club favorite Now & Ben: The Modern Inventions of Benjamin Franklin) shares all sorts of amazing facts about the original Renaissance man. If you love learning about history, nature, fascinating people and the way things work, then you’ll love this book! (Ages 6-9)

Well my husband and I had Just read da vinci code right before this came and it was very informative to and a great way to introduce da Vinci to our 8 year old son who loves science and invention. There is another book about Ben Franklin by the same author that I'm currently seeking.
