Light and gravity are the stars of this easy-to-follow take on what it means to be a scientist, as seen through a messily coiffed Albert Einstein character and his faithful dog. Where light comes from and how it’s used throughout the day—red tail lights on cars, flashlights in a darkened room—segues into silly anecdotes about kids falling and spilling things (no one escapes gravity) until the book finally asks, at the end: “Isn’t that cool? Think about Einstein next time you turn off the lights or watch something fall down to the floor.” Cool, indeed. Ages two to five.
