The Boy that Changed the World -Book Review

Did you know that-- what you do today can change the world forever?
Everything You Do Matters!!!

The Boy Who Changed the World
By Author: Andy Andrews
Illustrated by: Philip Hurst

Book Description
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.

No wonder, that Andy Andrews is a best selling author, he writes such great books. This engaging tale, teaches children that their actions can set off a spark that in turn can influence others. This story is based on Andy Andrew's popular book, The Butterfly Effect, just written so children can better understand it. This book has beautiful illustrations. The pictures are bright and very colorful. On just about every page, you will see butterflies, ending with abunch of butterflies. The Boy Who Changed the World reveals the incredible truth that everything You do matters-what you did yesterday,what you did today, and what you will do tomorrow. Every Choice you make(good or bad)can make a difference. In this great book, Andy Andrews, shows children that everything they do, every action (big or small) can have a ripple effect around the world. (The Butterfly Effect).

After reading this book, I think that children will have a better understanding of the Butterfly Effect and may even get the desire to be the boy or girl that changes the world, or at least they may think more about their actions. Everything You do Matters!!

This book would be a good one to read at school and/or religious education. Teachers can even download school circulum on The Boy Who Changed the World by visiting AndyAndrews.com/Education.
