Meet Einstein by Mariela Kleiner is one of the Reading Kingdom’s recommended kids stories with pictures. Melissa Gaynor explains why:
What You Need to Know:
• Meet Einstein offers a very early introduction to science.
• There is information in the back of the book, geared specifically to parents. It includes some background on Einstein and a few questions for your kids.
• Meet Einstein is Mariela Kleiner’s first children’s book.
• Notice the scientific elements and helpful descriptions on the endpapers.
It’s never too early to inspire a love of science. And who better to offer that inspiration than Albert Einstein? Especially this illustrated version of the legendary genius. He looks friendly, thoughtful, and approachable. Einstein, along with an adorable pup and an amusing frog, offers a very basic introduction to science, light and gravity. The concepts are explained using every day objects and circumstances that even the youngest readers will relate to. The children depicted in the book are colorful, cheerful and energetic. In fact, there is motion on almost every page – water squirting, frogs leaping and papers flying. It almost makes you want to jump into the pages and start experimenting! There are also fun details like the frog with the umbrella and the crabs on the beach. Kleiner and Garofoli have taken a potentially dull topic and made it seem lively and exciting.”
