Book Review: Albert Einstein by Inspired Inner Genius

The Inspired Inner Genius folks have done a great job distilling the lives of great men and women into simplified, but not overly simplistic, tales for children that serve as intriguing introductions to their respective subjects. With colorful illustrations and an emphasis on overcoming the types of challenges that children can relate to, the books offer engaging peeks behind the curtain of famous historical figures. There are references to more complex subjects (like the theory of relativity) that are mentioned but not directly addressed, which offers opportunities for interactive teachable moments and further reading.

The Einstein book presents the course of the scientist’s life from frustrated young student to brilliant thinker in a way that is relatable and inspires kids to realize that everyone struggles at times in their life, but that struggle can serve as a gateway to greatness and inspiration. This is a great way to spur kids to think about what can be accomplished if they don’t let obstacles keep them from pursuing their dreams, and it does so in a fun and easily digestible way.

Thanks to the author for my obligation-free review copy.
