Product description

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.

Author information

Jennifer Berne is currently a contributing writer for Nick Jr. Magazine and spends her time writing children's books about the subjects she loves most; our amazing universe and the people who are passionate about it. Vladimir Radunsky, when not creating award-winning children's books such as What Does Peace Feel Like?, the best-selling The Maestro Plays, and the New York Times Best Illustrated Book Mighty Asparagus, refills his soul with the sounds of Bach, Chopin, and Snoop Dogg.
