While she waits for his reply, April imagines everything he might be doing instead of working on math. Could he be riding his bike? Or working in his garden? Maybe he's playing his violin. But finally, Einstein sends the girls a clue to solving the puzzle.
Lynne Barasch is the acclaimed author of several children's books. Ask Albert Einstein is based on an actual letter the famous scientist received from a young student and his unusual response. This delightful story conveys a teenager's fear of possible failure and the compassion of a younger sibling who ultimately saves the day.
"A delightful story." (School Library Journal)
