Did you know that what you do today can change the world forever?
The Boy Who Changed the World opens with a young Norman Borlaug playing in his family’s cornfields with his sisters. One day, Norman would grow up and use his knowledge of agriculture to save the lives of two billion people. Two billion! Norman changed the world! Or was it Henry Wallace who changed the world? Or maybe it was George Washington Carver?
This engaging story reveals the incredible truth that everything we do matters! Based on The Butterfly Effect, Andy’s timeless tale shows children that even the smallest of our actions can affect all of humanity. The book is beautifully illustrated and shares the stories of Nobel Laureate Norman Borlaug, Vice President Henry Wallace, Inventor George Washington Carver, and Farmer Moses Carver. Through the stories of each, a different butterfly will appear. The book will end with a flourish of butterflies and a charge to the child that they, too, can be the boy or girl who changes the world.
I haven’t been reviewing many books lately but when I saw this one, I couldn’t pass it up. A children’s book about making a difference with a Christian perspective is DEFINITELY worth checking out.
And we were not disappointed by The Boy Who Changed the World by Andy Andrews. This beautiful story illustrates the impact one person can make on the world – and the impact others had on THEIR lives.
My boys listened intently, but I almost felt as if the book was just as much for me as it was for them. Each story not only highlighted a BOY that changed the world, but the ADULT that helped and inspired them along the way as well. Honestly, I got goosebumps several times throughout the book at how the stories connected together.
And the boys loved the colorful illustrations of this hardcover book – always a bonus when trying to keep toddlers and preschoolers interested in a book!
I can’t wait to reread this with them and talk more about how THEY can change the world, even in the things that seem very small to them.
Please add this book to your child or grandchild’s library – it will truly touch each of your lives.
