Albert Einstein was born on this day in 1879 in Germany. Because of his wild hair and his accent, he may have contributed to the idea of a “mad scientist,” but he was not mad at all. In fact, he was a very thoughtful person, and he especially thought about how things work. He was so curious that whenever he wanted to know something, he went to find the answer and learned many things from reading books. Children may be interested to know that as a child, he was very shy and quiet and didn’t like school because he liked to think creatively instead of repeating things.
