Since my eldest son loves math and science, I made it a goal to introduce books that convey the struggles that scientists often face. On a Beam of Light: A Story of Albert Einstein by Jennifer Berne, is a brilliant introduction to a man who never ceased to question. It is beautifully written and illustrated.
Instantly, my son aligned himself to Mr. Einstein. “Mom, we both love numbers and use them to figure things out. When we can’t solve a problem, we use music to help us think better. Albert plays the violin and I play the cello. Oh, and we NEVER stop asking questions!”
When my son asked me, “Was there a woman in science like Albert Einstein?”; I became inspired to learn and teach him about women of science.
