The Boy who changed the world is a new children’s book by Andy Andrews which tells the tale of Norman Borlaug. This tale has been told in Andy’s book The Butterfly Effect as well but this time it has been further simplified for a child’s reading. Also focusing on one story instead of a couple also helps simplify this book for kids. Where this book gets its heart is its great illustrations and its interpretations of the major events of the story in such a way that a young child would understand. This book is approximately a Juvenile reading level though an adult’s help in understanding the deeper concepts of the book would help a lot. The main purpose of the book is to say to kids that because of something they do today they could change the world!
I would again recommend this book to anyone who has kids who are reading and would love to give them another great story. Also it helps as an adult to read this with your kid as it is a gentle reminder to give yourself some perspective.
