"The Boy Who Changed the World" by Andy Andrews- Book Review
What if one little boy had the power to change the world? In this beautifully illustrated book written by Andy Andrews, we follow the story of several little boys each of whom had a part in changing the world.
The Boy Who Changed the World is a beautiful reminder of the influence one person can have on the life of another. We may not understand how our choices have the power to influence the next generation. This book was a pleasant reminder that even though the world faces enormous challenges, we have been placed on this earth to make a difference - even if it's only in the life of one other person. You never know - that one person may be the boy who changes the world.
Even though this book is geared for children, the story is valuable and relevant for individuals of all ages. We were all placed on this earth to serve a purpose. No decision, no effort is inconsequential. Even the smallest choice can hold the power to bring about tremendous change.
I also love the history this book covers. Although the story begins in the current age, the author leads the reader on a journey back in time to discover how they arrived at their current situation. Children will be able to recognize figures from history as part of the story.
I would definitely recommend this book to family and friends. A beautiful story. A great reminder. We all have the power to make a difference.
