"Michelangelo is a familiar name in the world of renaissance painting and sculpture, but did you know he was also a poet, architect and engineer? Simonetta Carr couples her experience as an elementary school teacher with her background in Italian art to bring this extraordinary man to young readers in her new book, Michelangelo for Kids. Here is a thoughtfully written, readily accessible, and beautifully illustrated immersion in the life of this extraordinary artist whose talents influenced the history of Western art ." said.

"A fabulous book! I love Michelangelo and studied him in college. My kids didn't love the book quite as much as I did, but that's okay. It gave us a good start on appreciating this historic artist and his work.

The book is a history of Michelangelo's life, with corresponding activities included throughout. Readers draw their own monsters (just like Michelangelo) after reading about his education. In the section about the David, they carve a soap sculpture. Other activities include drawing, hidden pictures, origami, and baking. It's a great hands-on experience while learning about this amazing artist and engineer.

The history is well written and informative. Kids that enjoy history and art will appreciate the text and enjoy the activities. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a good way to teach their kids about Michelangelo, the Renaissance, or art history.

Content: Nude sculptures and paintings (I didn't think it needed mentioning, but included it just in case anyone wasn't expecting it).

Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
