In 1952, April is seven years old and adores her big sister, Annabel. But Annabel is failing her math class and desperately needs help with a tough math problem. April decides to write to Albert Einstein, asking him to give a hand. While she waits for his reply, April imagines everything he might be doing instead of working on math. Could he be riding his bike? Or working in his garden? Maybe he's playing his violin. But finally, Einstein sends the girls a clue to solving the puzzle. Lynne Barasch is the acclaimed author of several children's books. Ask Albert Einstein is based on an actual letter the famous scientist received from a young student and his unusual response.

Period.This audiobook is proof that we can create something from nothing together with our kids. What you're about to embark on is a journey that no one can take away from you.
