ON A BEAM OF LIGHT A Story of Albert Einstein

by | Read by Rich Orlow

Children Ages 6+ • 15 mins. • Unabridged • © 2013

Rich Orlow narrates steadily and distinctly, letting the world of Albert Einstein reveal itself to young listeners. Albert was described by his parents as “so different, but dear.” A gift of a compass opened up the world; a childhood experience of watching sunlight and imagining a ride on a light beam spurred him on to a life of questioning. Listeners will find Albert “imagining, wondering, figuring, and thinking” while on his sailboat, playing his violin, or walking around town in his signature sweaters and baggy pants. The science of time and space had a genius on its hands, and Orlow also voices the enthusiasm of several scientists who are excited by Einstein’s teachings. The production concludes with an author’s note in which Orlow’s own passion for Einstein is evident. A.R. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2014]
