9780811872355: On a Beam of Light: A Story of Albert Einstein

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. This brilliant mind will one day offer up some of the most revolutionary ideas ever conceived. From a boy endlessly fascinated by the wonders around him, Albert Einstein ultimately grows into a man of genius recognized the world over for profoundly illuminating our understanding of the universe. Jennifer Berne and Vladimir Radunsky invite the reader to travel along with Einstein on a journey full of curiosity, laughter, and scientific discovery. Parents and children alike will appreciate this moving story of the powerful difference imagination can make in any life.

About the Author:

Jennifer Berne is the author of the acclaimed Manfish, about Jacques Cousteau, and spends her time writing children's books about the subjects she loves most—our amazing universe and the people who are passionate about it. She lives in Copake, New York.

Vladimir Radunsky, when not creating award-winning children's books, refills his soul with the sounds of Bach, Chopin, and Snoop Dogg. He lives in Rome, Italy.
