The Boy Who Changed the World {Book Review}

image Do your children ever wonder if they will have an impact on the world? Do they dream about what they will do many years from now? The Boy Who Changed the World by Andy Andrews is a wonderfully-illustrated book that tells the story of three boys: Norman Borlaug, Henry Wallace, and George Washington Carver. These three boys each made a difference, but their stories are all entwined together.

This book shows children how every little thing that we do matters {the ‘butterfly effect’} and our decisions can impact others and make a difference in the world. For each character in the story, a butterfly is shown somewhere in the illustration to represent their life and at the end of the book the butterflies are all shown together ~ reminding children that God created each of us for a purpose and our lives can make a difference.

Our kids have been enjoying The Boy Who Changed the World since it arrived this past week and I even learned a few things that I didn’t know before. The story and pictures will keep children interested while teaching them an important concept.
