Format: Paperback
My 10-yr old granddaughter was engaged by this biography of Albert Einstein. She was struck by the fact that Einstein was considered dull as a student. She knew of him only as a brilliant mathematician. She is inspired by the story of a boy who appeared to be unsuccessful in grade school and yet who made a huge success of his later life by pursuing his passion. She loved the book.

This book was well reviewed and I was very disappointed. Even if it's written for poor readers, does it have to read like Dick and Jane? Children are young, not simple-minded. Give kids real literature or they won't keep reading, they'll plug in to the media.

Format: Paperback
This is a very nice children's biography of Albert Einstein. It provides a good portrait of the young man, Europe and what it might have been like to be him. Einstein was great at mathematics but poor in reading and writing. He suffered for it and almost wasn't allowed to go on to higher education because of it. Einstein worked hard and was able to enter a university in Switzerland then flee to the United States as Hitler took over many European countries. A good story for kids.
