1. Personal Reaction: This book was very interesting and very factual all about Einstein. Through all of the things that he had learned and done throughout his life. Since, this book is very recent the book has really good quality pictures and has little pictures on the side with captions to describe them. This book would be really good to do a biography on with this book.
2. Purpose/Use in the classroom: The genre of this book is considered to be a biography. A science unit could be done on Albe

Personal Reaction- I think this book was very good. It is chalk full of information and I read so much stuff that I didn't know about him. The book is filled with pictures and captions and little blurbs on each page giving fun facts. This was a fun read and full of useful information and photos.
Read Aloud: I would use this as a read aloud for a science unit on the background and lives of scientists.
Independent Reading: I would assign this to a child in maybe 4th grade to read on their own if t

If you are a fan of Albert Einstein then I highly recommend this children's book.

Biography: This book was well-done and extremely interesting. I learned things I hadn't known about Einstein; one being that he married his cousin, another that his brain did not split all the way down like the rest of our brains do, likely increasing potential for nerve connections.

It has a lot of new information and isn't covered with words on every page. This book is special, because it shows more about Albert Einstein's personal life like he played the violin.
An excellent first biography of Einstein with quotes, illustrations and interesting comments from AE himself. Part of my son's history/science curriculum.
