---------------------------

Grade 3-5-This biography describes Einstein's early struggle to harness and focus his extraordinary
abilities; his relationships with his family and first wife; and, lending depth to the story, his most significant
scientific discoveries. Brallier does an adequate job of presenting the facts and injects touches of humor into his
text. He also discusses Einstein's exile from Germany in the early 1930s and his political views and activities,
including the irony that the man who strove for a world without war helped to create the atomic bomb. There are several
full-page sidebars, including one on "The Magnetic Earth" and another on "Hitler and the Nazis," and two time lines that
contrast world events with those of the scientist's life. Black-and-white cartoon illustrations do little to enhance the
text.
