Leonardo’s Horse

leonardo's horse

By Jean Fritz

Nonfiction/biography doesn’t get much better than this! Enjoy this picture book that tells a true story that begins in the late 1400’s with young Leonardo daVinci in Italy, and ends in current-day Michigan in Frederick Meijers Gardens!  Here is a story that satisfies an interest in not only the artistry behind this 24 foot bronze horse, but also tells the actual process of how such a big statue is made. Overall, a wonderful depiction of Leonardo’s times and creativity.
