    Have re-discovered "quality time." Evenings listening to good books have replaced mindless tv watching. What a difference!

    Story
    "Informative and VERY interesting!"

    This is the first children's book I have reviewed. We often get them for grandchildren, but this is the first one I really felt was so good, I wanted to give it a "shout out." We recently took our 4 & 6 year old grandkids on a trip, and they listened to this. They had recently had an opportunity to get to know a bit about Einstein through another situation, so I thought it possible they might enjoy listening to a little about his life. I am not sure I had expected them to listen to all of it, but they did. Truthfully, I don't think they understood it all (especially parts like how Einstein had to avoid Germany during the war), but they were quite engaged. Given their ages, it helped that they knew a little about Einstein beforehand, but I will say that I also liked the book and its' narration. The book is written for children slightly older I'd say (doubt ours would have liked it without having first heard of him) but every bit is interesting and geared to kids' interest. For instance it (cleverly) began with how Einstein had had trouble learning to talk as a child, and how he found school boring. What kid wouldn't tune it to that? After that, they were hooked and we all found it well worth the credit! Recommend.

    Story
    "My 6 year old loved this story."
    What made the experience of listening to Who Was Albert Einstein? the most enjoyable?

    This is a very entertaining story about the life of Albert Einstein. Our entire family listened to it in the car on a road trip. My youngest (age 6) has listened again and again. We live in Germany so she is already connected to any history here, but she really took to the concepts in which Einstein is credited for. It was very interesting for all of us.
