Review of ‘On a Beam of Light’ a story of Albert Einstein by Jennifer Berne, pictures by Vladimir Radunsky, published in 2013, http://www.chroniclekids.com
This delightful children’s book introduces children to the simplicity of Albert Einstein’s life as a child. His questioning led to deep questions that he continued to remember and work on throughout his life.
The illustrations show the texture of the watercolour paper with appealing, descriptive drawings. This book is not only informative, but a story that will inspire young children to realise the importance of continuing to question themselves. ‘On a Beam of Light’ shows how music made Albert happy and encourages children, when they grow up, not to lose the ability to enjoy life.
