There are four books in the Max Einstein book series, written by James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein. These books are probably best for ages eight to fourteen. Max Einstein: The Genius Experiment is a #1 New York Times bestseller and Max Einstein is the first and only children’s adventure series officially approved by the Albert Einstein Archives.
The curly-haired, redhead, Maxine Einstein, is a twelve-year-old orphan genius with a huge heart and she may or may not be related to Albert Einstein. Max has no idea who her parents are. She’s infatuated with Albert Einstein and talks to him often, well, his photograph anyway.

According to Variety.com, Imagine Kids & Family has won the rights to develop James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein’s “Max Einstein” books as an animated series, I really hope this happens, I believe it would be an excellent series for kids with all of the science and history of Albert Einstein. Max Einstein is full of adventure and I love that she’s a positive role model and a genius.
I hope you enjoy reading the Max Einstein series, I believe that it’s one of the best series for kids, I may be biased because of my own admiration for Albert Einstein and I absolutely love all of his quotes.
