This picture book biography starts with Leonardo da Vinci and his vision to create a bronze horse statue in honor of his father. After becoming busy with other famous works he regretfully did not finish the horse and the clay model was destroyed. Several centuries later Charles Dent wanted to finish Leonardo’s horse but he too died without finishing it. However, Charles’ friends and family did finish it after his death and cast it in bronze. Now 500 years after Leonardo started his horse it was finally finished and sent to Milan. The author focuses more on the horse than its makers, making this picture book informational rather than biography. [return][return]This book can also show students that math has not changed in a long time. This book also provides students with the knowledge that calculators are not needed to solve math problems. The book also gives insight into Leonardo da Vinci. This book would be good for a cross-curriculum project for students researching da Vinci. Jean Fritz gives some detail to de Vinci’s life without giving all the information. [return][return]Informational Nonfiction[return]Reading Level: 4.6

Marvelous. Reads like a story, even though it's not a narrative. Just a beautiful and concise introduction to Da Vinci, his time and place, to art, even to the actual process of making a bronze sculpture. Teachers can use it, and families can love it. ( )

Prolific children's author Jean Fritz, who has explored the lives of many historical figures in her titles - What's The Big Idea, Ben Franklin?, Can't You Make Them Behave, King George?, You Want Women to Vote, Lizzie Stanton? - here turns her attention to the little-known tale of the horse that Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci created for the duke of Milan. That is to say, the horse he meant to create for the duke, but which (despite a clay model being made) was never cast, and which haunted him until his death. Turning from the sad day in 1519, Fritz moves on the 1970s, when American Charlie Dent, having stumbled upon the story, sets out to create Leonardo's horse at last, as a gift from the people of America to the people of Italy.

An engaging tale - and one with which I was completely unfamiliar! - Leonardo's Horse is part biography and part human interest story, offering young readers an introduction to one of the most important figures of the Italian Renaissance, while also highlighting, through the story of Dent's (and then sculptor Nina Akamu's) quest to finish da Vinci's project, the impact that his work still has, these many centuries later. That idea - that contemporary people still feel passionately enough about da Vinci's legacy that they will go to great lengths to honor it - is the best thing about this book, although illustrator Hudson Talbott's accompanying artwork is also very appealing. All in all, an appealing book, one I would recommend to young artists and dreamers, and to any young reader interested in Leonardo da Vinci. ( )

Anyone who watched the young Leonardo wander the countryside around his home in Vinci might have guessed that he would be an artist.
