The Boy Who Changed the World

The Boy Who Changed the WorldWritten by Andy Andrews & Illustrated by Philip Hurst
ISBN: 978-1-4003-1605-2
Publisher: Thomas Nelson, Inc

In this children’s’ book, Norman can be found among his family corn fields, playing with his sisters and discovering how he wants to change the world and feed the hungry. Norman invents special seeds that grow super plants to feed hungry people! It saves two billion people from starving! He was the boy who changed the world or was he? The book continues by telling the stories of Henry, George and Moses all the while explaining the important of the Butterfly Effect and how each life effects others lives. Each individual action affects our future. We can all change the world! The book is great for kids ages 8-12.

I really enjoyed the positive message of this book. It clearly explains the importance of our actions on a day to day basis and how each decision good or bad affects our lives and the lives of others. It gives kids the desire to change the world, especially their world, for the better! It has a strong moral message as well as spiritual implications. It teaches that God made us for a reason and we should do our best to use our minds and talents for him. Aside from one misspelling of the word seeds on page 5, this ARC was very well done. I would recommend it to others.
