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.

Professional reviews

"Rich Orlow narrates steadily and distinctly, letting the world of Albert Einstein reveal itself to young listeners. Albert was described by his parents as Òso different, but dear.Ó A gift of a compass opened up the world; a childhood experience of watching sunlight and imagining a ride on a light beam spurred him on to a life of questioning. Listeners will find Albert Òimagining, wondering, figuring, and thinkingÓ while on his sailboat, playing his violin, or walking around town in his signature sweaters and baggy pants. The science of time and space had a genius on its hands, and Orlow also voices the enthusiasm of several scientists who are excited by EinsteinÕs teachings. The production concludes with an authorÕs note in which OrlowÕs own passion for Einstein is evident. A.R. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
