An easy to understand picture book with a powerful message

The Boy Who Changed the World - Andy Andrews

The boy who changed the world, by Andy Andrews, is an enjoyable picture book for the entire family. The message is simple but very profound-- the unforeseen consequences that our actions and decisions have on ourselves and others.


The author shares with young readers the story of four boys; Norman, Henry, George, and Moses, whose lives would be entwined through their gift of caring. They grow up into adults that found ways to use their knowledge and caring nature for the benefit of many.


The storyline, its simple vocabulary, and the vivid images would captive young readers and make them think about how a great idea, no matter how small, could be nourished to make a difference in the world. And how their actions could lead to unforeseen consequences.


I highly recommend this book to parents and to those working with young readers who are looking for an easy to understand picture book with a powerful message.
