Everyone knows who Einstein grew up to be, but not what he was like as a child. This book allows readers to do just that.

My two sons, ages 9 & 6, read this book together. The book made Einstein a more real to them. I do not think they will forget the wonderful contributions this man made. It has also inspired them to read other books in this same series. All of these books are easy to read yet interesting to kids of all ages.
