Book Review: The Boy Who Changed the World by Andy Andrews
"The Boy Who Changed the World" is a new children's book by Andy Andrews. It is a companion to the gift book "The Butterfly Effect," also by Andy Andrews.
This book tells the story of a young boy, Norman, and what he did that changed the world. That then leads into the next story of a second person and makes you wonder if, in fact, that person really changed the world. More and more stories follow, showing how each one of them impacted the life of the next. It's based on the premise that what we do - no matter how small an act - can have a significant effect on the lives of others.
It has a wonderful message, and positively challenges children to think that they, too, can change the world.
