Summary Here's a beautiful historical fiction picture book--perfect for the Common Core--that provides a rare glimpse into the early childhood of Albert Einstein, the world's most famous physicist. Three-year-old Albie has never said a single word. When his worried mother and father consult a doctor, he advises them to expose little Albie to new things: a trip to the orchestra, an astronomy lecture, a toy boat race in the park. But though Albie dances with excitement at each new experience, he remains silent. Finally, the thoughtful, quiet child witnesses something so incredible, he utters his very first word: "Why'" Kids, parents, and teachers will be delighted and reassured by this joyous story of a child who develops a bit differently than others. From the Hardcover edition.
