From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 3--In this charming story, young Theo meets his father's old friend Albert Einstein for the first time. The boy and "the most famous man alive" go for a sail on the lake, and Einstein drops his compass, a gift he has carried with him since childhood. Theo rescues it and learns that each person has a talent for something that contributes to the happiness of others. Juhasz has created wonderful pictures that sweep across each spread. Most of the action takes place on a boat on a tree- and mountain-lined lake, and the art is done predominately in watery blues and greens. The delight both Einstein and Theo share in the day's adventures is fully captured, as are their myriad expressions. The explanations of how a compass works and what a physicist does, as well as the rich vocabulary make this an excellent read-aloud.--Jean Lowery, Bishop Woods Elementary School, New Haven, CT
