Change the World

The Boy Who Changed the WorldThe Boy Who Changed the World by Andy Andrews is a colorful children’s book that talks about the impact even a small action can have on the world. The book is adapted from Andrews’ inspirational book The Butterfly Effect in order to bring it down to a child’s level of understanding. It is graphically and colorfully illustrated by Philip Hurst.

In order to illustrate his point the author tells the story of the development of a hybrid corn seed that has saved the lives of billions from starvation. He traces the events that led up to the development backward through time to the small act of a simple farmer who rescued a small boy from the hands of outlaws and brought him into his own family.

This story does a good job of showing how everything we do can have an impact. Every child needs to learn the lesson that they don’t have to be a president, or CEO, or Military Hero to change to world. They just need to be themselves and do what they can for others.
