Kate Recommends

 "There is nothing childish in this story; I found myself searching for historical clues and rooting for, at least, somewhat of a happy ending. I would go for both fingers crossed and thumbs up for this hopeful, but by no means moralistic, tale." ~Kate


On a Beam of Light by Jennifer Berne

"A well-loved, always questioning, young Albert Einstein goes for a speedy bike ride and imagines himself racing through space on a beam of light. This broad thought in his imagination spurs him on to read and explore and ask about light and sound and force and mathematics...Jennifer Berne tells a story of a funny, brilliant, peaceful and always wondering man while Vladimir Radunsky whimsically, beautifully and softly illustrates the tale of a great and always moving man." ~Kate
