Description
 
Written by Stephanie Sammartino McPherson
Ages 9-12, Paperback
112 pages
Lerner Books, 2005

Recounts the life of the scientist whose theories of relativity revolutionized the way we look at space and time.The descriptions of young Albert's difficulties in school, which will enthrall young readers, embody what the author does particularly well throughout this book--depict Einstein as a person both like and unlike others.

Without trivializing Einstein's genius, McPherson lets readers feel the great scientist's excitement and frustration with his work. Explanations of Einstein's scientific discoveries are clearly presented, as is the social context of Germany between the wars and during the Nazi years.

Photographs of Einstein, including one of him at age five, are well chosen to leave some new visual memories of the famous face. McPherson provides readers with a strong impression of an independent mind at work--so strong, in fact, that children may wish they could have met the genius.
