Trusted Reviews & Ratings

Readerly Mom
Bay Area mother of two, world traveler, book lover, picky reader
6.0 / 7.0

This book is a great introduction to both Albert Einstein and his work, and I like that. It also sweetly delivers important messages–that curiosity is powerful, that thinking about the unknown is exciting, and that you don’t need to fit in to accomplish great things–and I love that. The illustrative style is simple, distinctive, and fun, and the text is concise yet powerful. I am always happy for a good non-fiction or STEM book to add to our collection, and this is a great one.
