Scholastic Science Supergiants: Did It Take Creativity to Find Relativity, Albert Einstein?

by Gilda Berger, Melvin Berger Illustrated by Brandon Dorman
A friendly writing style, attractive design, and rigorous standards for research will make this the perfect introduction to Albert Einstein for younger readers.

From being a mediocre high school student in Germany to becoming a world-renowned physicist living in Princeton, N.J., the life and work of Albert Einstein is clearly explained in a question-and-answer format for younger readers. The combination of easy-to-read text, large photographs and illustrations, and simple experiments clearly explain Einstein's scientific work, such as the Theory of Relativity.
