Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-7 This is a solid, if somewhat brief introduction to the scientist's life. Heinrichs begins by explaining how Einstein's work was the precursor for so many 20th-century discoveries and how he changed the way we think about space, time, and motion. The text then describes his life from his birth in 1879 in Germany to his death 76 years later in the U.S. It highlights his major discoveries, as well as his 1921 Nobel Prize. Large black-and-white or sepia photographs appear on almost every page, and sidebars are used to further explain topics and to highlight Einstein's thoughts and quotes. Although students requiring more in-depth information would be better served by John B. Severance's Einstein: Visionary Scientist (Clarion, 1999), the straightforward, readable text makes this book a good choice. -Maren Ostergard, Bellevue Regional Library, WA
