Genius A Photobiography of Albert Einstein by Marfe Ferguson Delano

This National Geographic photobiography chronicles the life of one of the most brilliant scientists who ever lived.

Young readers will learn about Einstein's remarkable theories that still influence the technologies of today and discover the causes he passionately supported such as disarmament and civil liberties.

Reviews

While the myriad photographs are fascinating, the bigger draw here is the wonderfully simple explanations of some of Einstein's theories...This entertaining effort displays clarity and intelligence. It has plenty of information for reports and is also a good choice for browsing. starred review, School Library Journal

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
