Sweet Book Summary:
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.
Author: Mariela Kleiner Illustrator: Viviana Garofoli Published: 2011, 32 pages

Sweet Discussion Questions:
• Would you want to be a scientist when you grow up? Why or why not?
• How is light important to your daily activities?
• What would happen if there was no gravity?
• What types of light do you use in your house?
• What tools do you have at home that can help you to start making your own observations?
