The Boy Who Changed the World
Reviewed by Irene Roth
The subtitle of the book tells the reader exactly what
the book is about: How your life matters. What a
wonderful message to give to kids! Books like this can
encourage a young reader to excel, no matter what (s)he
Throughout the book, Andrews discusses some of
the questions that we all have about the meaning of our
lives. How can we each make a difference in this vast
and sometimes empty world? As the reader turns each
page of the book, (s)he will learn that everything we do
does indeed matter. In fact, what you did yesterday,
what you do today, and what you will do tomorrow all
matter. What an empowering message for kids.
This overall theme has even more far reaching
implications. It would seem that all our actions have an
impact on others, in one way or another, not only
currently but also right through history. In fact,
generations from now, people will still be reaping some
of the benefits of our current actions.
This book has bold, colorful illustrations. It is easy to
read. It could be read either in one sitting or over time
to serve as a reminder that what we do matters in the
grand scope of things. That is what the butterfly effect
is all about.
I recommend this book to kids of all ages. It will be a
book that could be read many times and it will enrich as
well as inspire the reader each time.
