Meet Einstein: Science made fun in preschool

Do your preschoolers know that Albert Einstein was a scientist? Learn more about Albert Einstein and introduce some scientific tools through this simple and wonderfully illustrated children’s book…

“Meet Einstein” written by Mariela Kleiner and illustrated by Viviana Garofoli is a brand new children’s book that promotes wonderful vocabulary and conversation about scientific tools that we see and use in our everyday world.

I have gathered some tools that were shown in the book to extend the book into real life, meaningful experiences for the children…

As I read each simple page of the book, the children will be able to identify the items that I have brought to share…

I think this is one of my favorite pages in the book. I love how the author emphasizes how “Scientists like to ask lots of questions about why things happen and how things work.” Towards the back of the book there is a set of simple questions you can ask your students to promote further discussion…

And I am prepared for my students to want to jump up and down as the book shares some gravity fun!

And of course, we all know that we can all be a scientist!

I want to give a special shout out to the author of this terrific book and send a special thank you to the author for sharing this book with me…

It is my privilege to share this book with all of you and I invite you to check out the Meet Einstein website to learn more about this wonderful new children’s book!

    That looks like a great book! It’s definitely going on my “to buy” list! I’ve never really found a great book (at a preschool level) for introducing any of these concepts to children!

    Looks amazing! Our Head Start admin just went and purchased 40 of them for our classrooms. We’ve been emphasizing science exploration both in the classroom and with parents and how simple it can be. This book will be a perfect compliment to that.

    I’m going to give my daughter’s teacher the heads up on this book. I think it would make a great addition to the classroom, heck, maybe I’ll grab a copy and donate it to the class. 🙂

      I really enjoyed this book and after I got it, I thought of so many ideas I could do along with the book. Such a fun book to extend into all kinds of science experiences!
