I love this book for several reasons. It is the story of Albert Einstein's childhood, and how he behaved differently from the people around him, but at the same time, was thinking very big thoughts that would eventually contribute to the world. It explains instances where Albert Einstein did not seem to fit in (ex: sports), and how he would be interested in things that most people took for granted. I think it is a good book to help children be more accepting and understanding of people who behave differently.
I also love the illustrations in this book. They are very cute and colorful and a little on the art-deco side. It's really a beautiful book. The story is kept quite simple so that small children will stay interested, but at the same time learn a little about Einstein and how his childhood was.
