David doesn't like school. Sitting at a desk all day listening to teachers tell him things is boring. He'd rather learn about science, art, and history by practicing them. He wishes he could travel with Christopher Columbus rather than just hear about the explorer.
Finding an old coin gives David his wish. The coin's magic transports him through time to meet Columbus, who's on his way to visit Leonardo da Vinci, the famous painter and inventor.
At da Vinci's labyrinthine workshop, David meets Salai, the painter's apprentice. Mischievous and naughty, Salai leads David on an exciting journey through the workshop, where each room houses extraordinary inventions. Along the way David learns to dissect frogs and make dye from a flower— discovering secrets of da Vinci's art in the process. And finally he gets to take part in one of the inventor's greatest experiments.
The first of author Pauline de Saint-Just Gross's The Adventures of David and the Magic Coin series, Leonardo da Vinci, Columbus, and Little David delights children who like to learn through activities and experimentation and teaches them about two of history's most influential figures.
