Leonardo da Vinci gathered his observations and ideas in his now famous “Notebooks”. They include over 100,000 drawings and more than 6,000 pages of notations. Without a doubt, observation was at the core of his scientific exploration. Leonardo’s approach to scientific knowledge was visual. For him, art and science were one. For Leonardo, drawing was the ideal way to explore the whole range of the natural phenomena.
In this new book we learn about Leonardo’s constant exploration since the days of his childhood in the town of Vinci, and how children of any age can find inspiration in his work to create and maintain an interactive science notebook. Science notebooks in the style of Leonardo da Vinci’s notebooks are a powerful tool that can be used to help children make connections in order to expand their understanding of the world around them. You are invited to use this book as a tool to introduce your children to the power of visual literacy.
