The purpose of this nonfiction book is to tell the story of Albert Einstien. The book shows the start of his love for numbers and how that shaped his amazing life.

I love the part of the story that capitalized in Einstein‘s father giving him a compass,
opening the door to wonder more about this wold and how it works.

I would use this book in my classroom because it could spark interest in children and allow them the opportunity to find out what interest them about the universe. This book is a physical representation of what discovering and exploration is all about.

On a Beam of Light written by Jennifer Berne. This book describes Albert Einstein's imagination and hunger for exploration as a child and further shows him as an adult who is a genius, discovering lots of wonders around the universe. This book could show children the possibilities for their own lives for when they get older, and show them that if they dream it, they can do it.

This book was so great! It would be a nice opener for a lesson about Einstein himself or innovation itself. I also really liked the illustrations in this book.

On a Beam of Light by Jennifer Berne is a biography. It was published in 2013. This book tells us all about the life of Albert Einstein. It starts by telling us about his childhood which was quiet. He loved asking questions and learning new things. It then goes on to tell us about his adult life and all of his many achievements like his inventions and findings. It ends with children staring at question marks with an inquisitive look.

#LetsTravelAugust Day 15: Einstein loved to wonder about the nature of things. I like how this book captured the two pivotal moments in his life: when his father gave him a compass that allowed him to wonder even more about the universe, and that moment when he was “zipping through the countryside on his bicycle” around Europe‘s #lakeside and stared at the beams of sunlight reaching the earth.

What an inspirational picture book. I'm so glad we bought this instead of borrowing it from the library because we will be revisiting this. Not only is it a beautiful view into Albert Einstein's life, but it is very encouraging for kids that don't fit into the mold.
