"The Boy Who Changed the World" by Andy Andrews

Does what you do really matter? Even when you are a child? Yes, each life matters. "The Boy Who Changed the World" is a wonderful story for children showing how each person affects others around them. Norman Borlaug was a normal young man who loved to play in the cornfields. But, there was something Norman didn't like and that was knowing that someone didn't have enough to eat. His plan was to grow special seeds to grow super plants and try to stamp out hunger. Norman studied and succeeded, but was Norman the only one responsible for this success? You will need to read the book to find out!
This is a great book to help children understand that they can make a difference. The illustrations are bright and colorful, and make the story come alive. This is the children's companion to Andy Andrews' "The Butterfly Effect," which I recommend to adults. I was privileged to read a preview copy of this book through the Book Sneeze program from Thomas Nelson, and plan to buy it for my grandchildren.
