Об этой электронной книге

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'm always delighted to receive quality children's books from Thomas Nelson Publishers. Some of you may have read my earlier posts on many of Andy Andrews books. This time, I must say that Andy Andrews did it again. His latest book, "The Boy Who changed The World" is a brilliant story with a historical theme touching upon the lives of Nobel Laureate Norman Borlaug, Henry Wallace, George Washington Carver and Moses Carver. In this respect the older children can relate to the book very well and make a connection.As it turns out, this particular book is based on The Butterfly Effect. And this is the part that I love, that excites me the most. Paying it forward is like the butterfly effect in showing how one person can have an effect on another. An interesting thing is that the vision and message of this inspiring book is totally about how kids matter and that the choices you make in the little, ordinary things that you do can become extra-ordinary in the bigger picture. I highly recommend this inspiring book and give it a top ***** stars! Read it and share it with all! I personally am pleased to have this one in my library for my grandchildren.

    This book begins by talking about the "boy who changed the world." It tells the story of young Norman Borlaug who grew up to save two billion people from starvation. However, he couldn't have done this without Henry Wallace who got the idea to change seeds from George WAshington CArver, who may not have lived without the help and adoption by Moses Carver. Every decision ever made changes the world.

    I really enjoyed reading, The Boy that Changed the World, with my children. The book flows very well from start to finish and leaves you feeling like you have just journeyed through history. It is a great resource for a Charlotte Mason type class where you can make history come alive!!! When the book parallels the boys' stories with the butterfly effect my children went wild!! They found it so interesting that one butterfly flapping its wings can make such a difference. This gave them a little bit of science in a history class!!! We homeschool and so it is great to have an opportunity to get a little history, a little reading, and a little science all wrapped up in one book!!!! Oh, and the artwork was lovely throughout the entire book!! All in all, I would recommend, The Boy that Changed the World, to anyone with kids or without!!! I, too, enjoyed learning about history through this children’s book!!!

    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.
