The Boy Who Changed The World

Title: The Boy Who Changed The World
Author: Andy Andrews

Book Description:

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.

My Take:


This is the perfect book to read to your kids or to read to a class full of students.

The story is very engaging and the color filled pages keep little ones in anticipation and eagerly waiting more. This book is as inspiring as it is entertaining and provides a very important life principle at the same time.

What we do matters, and there is no better way to instill that in the minds of young readers everywhere than in this great book by Andy Andrews. He has provided us with all the tools we need and we can enjoy doing it at the same time.

This will be a treasured book for our family and will get passed down from one generation to another and to generations to come. I highly suggest you add it to your family library!

I give The Boy Who Changed The World, 5 Bookworms!
