Reviewed by CBC Reviewer

Albert Einstein's name has become synonymous with genius, but few elementary students understand much about his methods or ideas. This book portrays Einstein first and foremost as a curious thinker—someone whose ideas and imagery changed over time as he furthered and influenced scientific thought and understanding in profound ways. This approach will enable readers at the elementary and middle levels to appreciate his work, much of which was based on "thought pictures."

This engaging book shows not only the important facts of Einstein’s life and theories but also the amazing idiosyncrasy and uniqueness of this genius. This personalized approach will make Einstein's life accessible to young readers at the elementary and intermediate levels. Sources for further reading and a good index support readers who want to learn more. It earned a place as one of the NSTA/CBC Outstanding Science Trade Books published in 2009.
