On a Beam of Light: A Story of Albert Einstein (Albert Einstein Book for Kids, Books About Scientists for Kids, Biographies for Kids, Kids Science Books) (Paperback)
"I can’t say enough about On a Beam of Light: A Story of Albert Einstein.
This astonishingly accessible picture book introduction to one of
history’s greatest minds manages to both capture the essence of the man
and the wondrous nature of his lifelong endeavor to understand the world around him. Celebrating curiosity and passionate
perseverance, this inspiring book is perfect for young
thinkers who just can’t stop asking “Why?”
"This is a great book for any child – or adult, ahem – about Albert
Einstein. I really like how the biographical information about him is
presented in short, concise, sentences and those are printed in the book
using a large, well-spaced font, which makes it easy for reading aloud
or independently. While the text is a good example of narrative
nonfiction (meaning it reads like a story, not just a bunch of facts)
for younger kids, the artwork is something that I think a person of any
age can admire. I love this book as much as I loved Me . . . Jane (by Patrick McDonnell, 2011)—both are picture book biographies about inspirational people."
Travel along with Einstein on a journey full of curiosity, laughter, and scientific discovery. Parents and children alike will appreciate this moving story of the powerful difference imagination can make in any life.
