Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The life of Albert Einstein is brought to light in this book from the "First Biographies" series. His birth, childhood, education, and work as a patent clerk are explained first. His theories on the speed of light, gravity, and other works in the area of physics are described as well. His work as a pacifist and a teacher later in life is also detailed. An ongoing timeline highlighting the events described on each page makes it easy for children to put each event into a chronological context. A glossary and list of books and websites for further research completes this introductory text on Einstein. Reproductions of pictures and paintings, as well as photographs of historical locations, aid the learning process. This book would be a good reference work for a child beginning to learn about science and the people who revolutionized the subject. 2003, Capstone, Ages 5 to 8.
