Product Description

All children know who Albert Einstein grew up to be--but what was he like as a child? The clear text in this book is enhanced by illustrations and paintings, documents and photographs from the Smithsonian and the National Gallery.

This is a very nice children's biography of Albert Einstein. It provides a good portrait of the young man, Europe and what it might have been like to be him. Einstein was great at mathematics but poor in reading and writing. He suffered for it and almost wasn't allowed to go on to higher education because of it. Einstein worked hard and was able to enter a university in Switzerland then flee to the United States as Hitler took over many European countries. A good story for kids.
