I love this beautiful book for so many reasons that I'm making a list. 1.  It's a great and very well-told story.  Every word is perfectly chosen. 2.  It's based on a true story of a very famous person -- Albert Einstein, at around three years of age. 3.  It's a relatable story for kids of preschool and early elementary school age. 4.  In this day and age of constant comparisons, and growth and learning charts, it is a great reminder to parents, especially first-time parents, that every child will develop at his or her own rate.  I have one child, who is now six, and I still need to be reminded. 5.  It's a beautifully, wonderfully illustrated book.  The illustrations are absolutely perfect for the text and story.
