Thoughts on The Boy Who Changed the World
Some children's books inspire and inform not only the child, but also the adult reading it to them. This book by Andy Andrews, The Boy Who Changed the World is one of those rare books that accomplish both. I knew who George Washington Carver was and what he did, but I had never known "the butterfly effect" his life had on so many other influential people. This book was short, yet informative and the message of "you can make a difference!" is unmistakable in these pages.
".... every choice you make, good or bad, can make a difference."
The illustrations in this book are stunning. As soon as my copy arrived my children looked through the book, captivated by the colorful pictures. Later we read the book and they all seemed to enjoy it and understand the simple yet important message that we all need to hear and believe..... that you can make a difference in the world.
A delightful book.
