The Boy Who Changed the World

Did you know that what you do today can change the world forever?  
The Boy Who Changed the World opens with a young Norman Borlaug playing in his family’s cornfields with his sisters. One day, Norman would grow up and use his knowledge of agriculture to save the lives of two billion people. Two billion! Norman changed the world! Or was it Henry Wallace who changed the world? Or maybe it was George Washington Carver?  
This engaging story reveals the incredible truth that everything we do matters! Based on The Butterfly Effect, Andy’s timeless tale shows children that even the smallest of our actions can affect all of humanity. The book is beautifully illustrated and shares the stories of Nobel Laureate Norman Borlaug, Vice President Henry Wallace, Inventor George Washington Carver, and Farmer Moses Carver. Through the stories of each, a different butterfly will appear. The book will end with a flourish of butterflies and a charge to the child that they, too, can be the boy or girl who changes the world.
I received this in E-book format and read it to my children.  They enjoyed it, although they are a little young to understand the full meaning.  I, personally, loved the message that we all can make a difference.  Little decisions, small actions, and even young children can and do touch lives everyday!  Nice story, nice illustrations and an important theme!  4+ stars!
