Reviews - What do customers think about Albert Einstein: Young Thinker (The Childhood of Famous Americans Series)?
Engages 10-yr old Nov 24, 2008
My 10-yr old granddaughter was engaged by this biography of Albert Einstein. She was struck by the fact that Einstein was considered dull as a student. She knew of him only as a brilliant mathematician. She is inspired by the story of a boy who appeared to be unsuccessful in grade school and yet who made a huge success of his later life by pursuing his passion. She loved the book.
Einstein's Childhood Sep 29, 2008
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.
