Parents and children alike will appreciate this moving story of the powerful difference imagination can make in any life.
							
Reviews

Starred Review. "...beautifully conveys Einstein’s story. All aspects of this video beautifully work together to introduce youngsters to facets of a brilliant life." - Booklist (video review)

Three stars. “The impressionistically-styled iconographic-animated adaptation On a Beam of Light, based on the 2013 book by author Jennifer Berne and illustrator Vladimir Radunsky, centers on world-renowned genius Albert Einstein… recommended” - Video Librarian
