If you need a book to draw children in to non fiction, this is it
This book tells a sweet depiction of a child who turned into a man who was always a curious genius.
This is a fabulous biographical picture book of one of our important historical figures. This book uses a perfect style of illustration that is somewhat childlike and mirroring sketches and doodles that Einstein might have made when hammering out his theories in order to depict biographical details from the life of Albert Einstein. The book packs in a deceptively impressive amount of great information.
I ❤ the focus on how much wondering and questioning Einstein did as a child & the importance of 📚 and 🎶 or floating in a ⛵
When I was a kid a biography would focus on dates giving me nothing to relate to except a timeline. Kids don't yet know how equations can delineate the mysteries of the universe, and they don't need to understand genius, but they might relate to someone who doesn't want to wear socks.
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.
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.

On a Beam of Light: A Story of Albert Einstein by Jennifer Berne was amazing! It is about the life of Albert Einstein from beginning to end. Starts off 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“. He grows from a boy endlessly fascinated to ultimately growing into genius. It is about a journey full of curiosity, laughter, and scientific discovery.
#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.

He envisioned himself traveling at a speed beyond imagination in a beam of light. He was constantly fascinated by the world and wonders around him as a young boy. He became one of the most remembered geniuses.
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.
