This biography opens with Einstein’s birth. His parents quickly realized their silent little boy was different from other children, but they loved him “no matter what.” As Berne traces Einstein’s journey into manhood, she highlights in terms a child can understand how his deep thinking and curiosity eventually led him to remarkable scientific breakthroughs. She closes by noting that Einstein left behind many unanswered questions—questions young readers might someday be able to answer “by wondering, thinking, and imagining” just as Einstein did.
