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.

Book review - The boy who changed the world

I was delighted to see this book arrive at my door. I love many aspects of this book. The very first and most obvious when you first look at it, is its size and cover. This book stands out from a crowd. The vivid vibrant colors of the cover make this book a first pick for a lot of children. It comes alive and looks quite adventurous. I also loved that the vibrant colors and pictures continued the whole way through. It keeps a Childs attention. The stories I feel however are the best part. It is a wonderful combination of Christian based stores that were modeled from actual history. To know and to teach your child that what they are doing now can positively affect how the world lives, is quite the awesome realization. When reading this book to the children you can see their eyes like up with amazement and you can almost see what they are imagining they could do for the world. This book I surely hope is one that is treasured by parents and children alike. I know it is by our family. I think it would make a great addition to any family’s library and I highly recommend this to all families who want to teach their children how to be the best person they can be, with everything they do in life. I am very grateful to BOOKSneeze for giving me the opportunity to read this book in exchange for my honest and non biased opinions.
