Albert Einstein (Little People, BIG DREAMS #69)
Little Albert grew up in Germany, where it took him four years to formulate his first word. He was fascinated by how objects worked and, although he didn’t love school, he loved physics and math books. His brilliant mind contemplated space and time, and he eventually came up with the theory of relativity.
He shared his knowledge with the rest of the world, becoming the most original mind of the twentieth century. This fascinating book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the theoretical physicist’s life.
