An important message that we teach our kids is that you can make a difference! "The Boy Who Changed The World" by Andy Andrews is a wonderful children's book that teaches just that.
The book tells the story of four boys who grew up to change the world. We first learn about Norman Borlaug and how he fought world hunger. We are then introduced to another boy who grew up to change Norman's world. Basically, the book is about the Butterfly Effect. What we learn though out the book that each of them wouldn't have been able to accomplish their change without the other three. I read it with Haylee, my 4 year old. The story was a bit much for her to understand but would be perfect for some older school aged children.
Not only was the story very well written, but the illustrations were amazing! I think Haylee, loved those the most.
The story also made me curious about the men and had me doing a bit of research.
