Who Was Albert Einstein?
by Jess Brallier. Illustrated by Robert Andrew Parker
We know his name, his hair do, and that he's a genius, but who IS he really? Readers grades 8-11 (my parents enjoyed them too) learn about his trials at school, his German Jewish heritage during the Nazi years, his family challenges, and a kid-friendly rendition of his Nobel Prize winning discoveries. Full of freaky facts like the whereabouts of his brain, that he wasn't a great dad (self-acknowledged), hard work amazingly pays off... Girls and boys love it.
