This is an excellent addition to the Little People, Big Dreams series. The story of Einstein is told with a sense of humanity and with admiration for this renowned scientist and man.
Readers learn that young Einstein took time to develop; he did not speak until well past the expected time. His mind worked in its own way but led him to revolutionary scientific discoveries.
This book also highlights Einstein’s humanitarian efforts. He was able to emigrate from Germany when the Nazis came to power but did not stop there. He encouraged American universities to hire other Jewish scientists so that they would not die. Einstein also cared about other forms of discrimination in his new country.
The illustrations in this title perfectly accent the story. There are also additional resources at the end of the book.
Many thanks to NetGalley for this title. All opinions are my own.
