"There once was an absent minded little boy, always forgetting everything. He wasn't very neat either, in fact you could say he was rather messy. He didn't even tie his shoes. And you know what? Some people said he didn't know how. His teacher was always frustrated with him, because he had trouble paying attention in school. It seems his mind wandered a lot. He was always thinking of other things. He didn't like geography. He didn't history. I don't think he even liked school. But he did like numbers. He liked to watch ants. He liked to look at the sky.
He was Albert Einstein and Mr. Lepscky has done him justice in this wonderful children's book with gorgeous illustrations by Paolo Cardoni. Not only will you have the satisfaction of helping your child read when you finger through the pages of this book, but you will be teaching him a bit of history and you'll be teaching him that even kids who are different matter. This is an important book. It's a beautiful book. It's one that belongs in every child's library."
