The Boy who Changed the World ~ Andy Andrews

This is the Children's version of the book The Butterfly Effect. I would recommend this for ages 3-7; however, children of all ages will enjoy this book. The book has very colorful and very well drawn illustrations. Each page is filled with a picture of what is happening in the story. This is a great book to be read out loud to children as the illustrations will keep the attention of the young ones and keep the older children wanting to know what is going to happen...it is a page turner for children. Great book for bed time reading and discussion.

The story tells of 3 different boys and what effect they have had with what they have done in their lives. In the end it illustrates how each boy has made a difference in the world and how it all ties in together. It gives you great examples of how your actions, education and hard work will change the world.

The ending of the book does a great job to explain (with lots of colorful butterflies) what the whole butterfly effect is and how you can change the world with just one simple act of kindness, hard work, study hard and have a passion for what you do.

I would recommend this book be purchased and read to all children.
