Grade 3-5-This biography describes Einstein's early struggle to harness and focus his extraordinary abilities; his relationships with his family and first wife; and, lending depth to the story, his most significant scientific discoveries. Brallier does an adequate job of presenting the facts and injects touches of humor into his text. He also discusses Einstein's exile from Germany in the early 1930s and his political views and activities, including the irony that the man who strove for a world without war helped to create the atomic bomb. There are several full-page sidebars, including one on "The Magnetic Earth" and another on "Hitler and the Nazis," and two time lines that contrast world events with those of the scientist's life. Black-and-white cartoon illustrations do little to enhance the text.

For me reading about someone special like Einstein is a prize because you get to learn about someone's remarkable life and at the same time explore another world.
Einstein's biography will inspire readers because of his lifelong lesson-to keep on learning and never give up!
Albert Einstein is my role model. He was a hardworking and a kind person who donated so much to the world.
I recommend this book to people who are interested in Albert Einstein and those who want to change the world!
by Emily P. (soon to be in grade 4)
Albert wasn't a very organized person, yet he was one of the greatest scientists that ever lived on earth! Albert lost his sister and wife and heard stories about his family dying just because of Germany's ruler. Albert suffered many health problems and died in 1955.Albert wrote these instructions on his paper, donate my brain for science, cremate my body and throw the ashes in some secret place.
