Great Information Book for Kids!

I found this book very useful in gathering information to present to children about the life of Michelangelo. It is very clear how the information is organized in relation to the general facts of history and the general topics of artwork and masterpieces of that day. Along with this general information, the book includes references in each section that specifically link this information to the life and work of Michelangelo.

michelangelo - master of the renaissance

As a sixth grade teacher, I found this book to be a fascinating resource for students. The book is sectioned by Michelangelo's works, such as by sculptures, paintings, and architectural works. The photos are beautifully displayed and each work has a description for the reader. In addition, a chronological biography is outlined page after page as it relates to his works. Information such as his lifestyle, personal events, and affiliations and accomplishments are described. What's great about the book is the fact that it includes information about the renaissaince, such as other artists and important figures of the times. This gives the reader a feel for the period and gives an opportunity to make connections to its significance in time. A great book for both young readers and adults.
