The book begins by describing Albert’s childhood and experience in school. While most kids wanted to play games outside and have fun, Albert enjoyed spending his time solving puzzles and learning about science. In school he would ask a lot of questions; in fact, he asked so many that his teachers got annoyed with him and expelled him. Albert was then forced to learn things on his own. Although it took him time to gain respect in the science community, Albert published many theories and equations which were proven correct, and he became one of the most successful scientists of all time.

The most interesting part of the book for me was a rumor that Einstein didn’t speak until he was 3 or 4 years old, and the first thing that he said was the soup is too hot. The book said that this rumor wasn’t confirmed, but it still represents Einstein’s quirky personality. I was disappointed by the length of the book, because I would have enjoyed learning more about Albert Einstein, but the book still gave many interesting facts and stories about Einstein’s life. I think that this book is inspiring for learning more about science and taking more challenges. I would recommend this book for late elementary to middle school students who are interested in science.
