A boy rides a bicycle down a dusty road. But in his mind, he envisions
himself traveling at a speed beyond imagining, on a beam of light. This
brilliant mind will one day offer up some of the most revolutionary ideas ever
conceived. From a boy endlessly fascinated by the wonders around him,
Albert Einstein ultimately grows into a man of genius recognized the world
over for profoundly illuminating our understanding of the universe. Jennifer
Berne and Vladimir Radunsky invite the reader to travel along with Einstein
on a journey full of curiosity, laughter, and scientific discovery. Parents and
children alike will appreciate this moving story of the powerful difference
imagination can make in any life.
