This was the first Who Was? book I ever read and that got me started on the series and currently I have read over 80 of them. Highly reccomended

Albert Einstein was so AMAZING!

I loved this book!

Albert Einstein was so smart! Can you believe that when Albert's father asked the school principal what profession his son should consider the principal said,"It doesn't matter. Albert will never make a success of himself at anything."All I can say is that the principal was sorely mistaken.

very interesting and good

I read this book at school before, it taught me more about Albert Einstein and how he lived during childhood. I recommend reading this biography because it helps kids to understand the life of the smartest Jewish man of his time. This book also has illustrations.The drawings are very cool. Thumbs up!

The book taught me a lot about Albert Einstein. I didn't even know he was Jewish! It was a very good book, I would recommend it to you. It's really easy to read too. I wish they told me more about his family, though, that's why I gave it four stars instead of five.

This book made me think more about the importance of family.

This book was interesting. It tells about Albert's rough childhood. The teachers were mean, he didn't get to be with his family because of school, and he couldn't ask questions. He got married and had a child and he also adopted another child. His theory led to an atomic bomb but he didn't like war.

This was an engaging biography. Easy to understand, and a child (or adult) of any age could read it.

Albert Einstein made very interesting choices, he had interesting opinions and he observed nature and that light bent. He thought differently than other people and he figured out things that people hadn't thought of before.He was a shy person but when he spoke he had smart things to say. This book tells you about his life and his accomplishments.

Submitted 6/1/2015 by Design Team

Who was Albert Einstein? No really, who was Albert Einstein? Well, he was Jewish and he almost got captured by Hitler and the Nazis during a war. Did you know he died writing a letter to stop nuclear weapons? Did you know his theories led to the invention of the TV and the atomic bomb? He was also one of the smartest people EVER! This book may be short but it holds loads of information! I really liked this book because it tells you SO much about Albert Einstein! Another reason I liked this book was that it has some sketches of the scene which most books donโ€™t have. So if you like history and reading about interesting people, read Who Was Albert Einstein.
