This is a book that should be in every child's library. I have given multiple copies away as gifts, and everyone loves them. A wonderful introduction into the world of science. The author and illustrator did a great job making every child feel like they can be a scientist just like Albert Enstein.

I read this to all my Kindergarten and first grade students. They really loved the pictures. It lead into a great conversation afterward about "what is a scientist?" but I'm not sure they would pick this book up for the story itself.

From a teacher's perspective this book is wonderful. My kindergarten students are just getting to understand science and questioning the way things work. This book broke down hard concepts and really put things in terms they could understand. I had them draw a picture of what they thought a scientist looked like before reading the book, and then after. Besides understanding and learning who Einstein was, and his importance, they also realized they were scientists as well! Fabulous Book!

I bought this book because I love Einstein and I wanted to teach my daughter about him. I believe Einstein is a great role model for children to learn from. Though the book does not actually talk about who Einstein is, it does talk about two discoveries he had made, that is about light and gravity. The information is presented very simply so it is easy to grasp.

I read this to my child when she was just 1 and now almost 3. She always asks me to read this book and says "Einstein! Einstein!". The inside cover has a lot of science items to build vocabulary so my daughter and I always go over these (sometimes I think she enjoys this more than the book contents!) The artwork is very nice too. Einstein is portrayed in cool ways (one page is of him chilling on the beach).

I gave it 5 stars even though I think it really should be a 4 only because this book attracts my child to ask me to read it over and over to her when she can chose many many other books from our personal library.

Bought this for my 5 year old grand daughter. It is an understandable introduction to a very deep subject. She found it inspiring. Wants to be a scientist (along with being a princess) when she grows up.

We bought this book for our 5 year-old daughter. Daddy is an engineer and I'm a lawyer. We're pushing her toward science and engineering. We're working with her on science experiments at home and getting her excited about the STEM areas of education. This book is very good at explaining the basic concepts of what Einstein was known for -- gravity, light etc. She enjoyed it. It's never gonna be as exciting as Pinkalicious stuff or princesses, but it's pretty good nonetheless. :)

This book is perfect for budding scientist! The information about Einstein for parents is very good. My only issue is that the font is not always clear. For my young reader, she had a bid of difficulty identifying some letter.

I bought this book for my Pre K class. They really liked it and were interested in the different topics. I love at the end it has a list of questions you can ask your children to get them thinking. Very cool!
