The Boy Who Changed the World by Andy Andrews

Publisher: Thomas Nelson, 2010
Pages: 40
Genre: Picture Book, ages 4-8

Andy Andrews has created a story that will resonate with young and old alike. It is a simple message that lets us know that what we do today, our actions will affect the future in some way. This story starts out with a young boy, Norman Borlaug playing in his cornfield. When he grows up he uses what he has learned to save two billion people. The story then goes backwards in time showing how people in his life and on back played an influential part in shaping their lives.
This book was fun, informative and beautifully illustrated. It’s message was so great that I decided to read it to my middle school students the first week of school. I am sure they will enjoy it. I will then pass it on to my grandson.
