“The Boy who Changed the World”

This is a wonderful book for children to help show them that they are special. It tells the story of how ordinary people did extraordinary things that made changes in the world. Andy Andrews is the arthor of another book called “The Butterfly Effect: How Your Life Matters” which is the adult version (still G rated) of the same book.

Some of the stories are about Henry Wallace, George Washington Carver, and Moses Carver. It is as interesting, even for children to see how these people are related.

The illustrations add to the overall story and are well done.

This book is very good at showing how what we do each day affects other people. We may never know how that is but need to be aware that our actions do affects others.  I recommend this book for children and adults alike.
