Review: On a Beam of Light: A Story of Albert Einstein

On a Beam of Light: A Story of Albert Einstein
On a Beam of Light: A Story of Albert Einstein by Jennifer Berne
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Beautiful and inspiring. A great introduction to the life of Albert Einstein with lovely illustrations. Totally engaging for my 5- and 7-year-old, and led to more detailed questions from my 9-year-old. Hard topics – his work being used for nuclear missile research, for example – are relegated to the author’s notes at the end. I love that this book challenges young readers to carry on the questioning and imagining that led Einstein to many of his discoveries.
