Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Albert Einstein is brought to life in this "Compass Point Early Biography." Chapter One, "Wonder about the World," explains Einstein's interest in how the world works. The next few chapters describe Einstein's childhood and life, and the influence on his work by things that interested him, such as a compass given to him when he was five years old. Chapter Five, "New Ideas," gives a little background on Newtonian physics and how Einstein's ideas differed. Chapter Six, "A Famous Man," describes Einstein's fame and how it affected his life. Chapter Seven, "A Peaceful World," explains Hitler's Germany and how Einstein had to leave Germany and ended up working for peace. Chapter Eight, "Man of the Century," explains just how famous Einstein became, including his being honored as one of the "People of the Century" by Time magazine. A timeline, a glossary, and a page of "Did You Know?" facts about Einstein are included. Numerous photographs of Einstein throughout his life make this a very interesting book for a young scientist to read. 2003, Compass Point, Ages 5 to 8.
