The Boy Who Changed The World by author Andy Andrews is a Children’s book that aims to inspire kids that every little decision they make in life can make huge impact – maybe not in their lifetime – but in the next generation, or even the generation after.
The book starts off with the story of a boy named Norman and how he wants to feed hungry people in the world with his Dad’s cornfields. It all seems from the outset like this book is going to be all about Norman, but it’s not. We start being introduced to other people who without their decisions and ideas, Norman’s dreams would never have materialized.
I have 3 kids (ages 10, 8 and 4) and they all showed great interest in this book. One of my kids picked it up and read it last weekend. Today we were able to talk about it and he could still retell the story to me. The book is full of lovely full page color illustrations (by Philip Hurst) that will truly mesmerize kids. Even those who are not of reading age yet, they will enjoy the vivid, bright colors used throughout.
This is a valuable lesson for anyone to learn. If your kids really grasp this message, they could literally grow up to change the world.
