The Boy Who Changed the World

I was excited to receive this book to review.  I love children's books, especially ones that tell the story of real people.  This book tells about three boys who grow up and influence each other to make the world a better place.  Norman Borlaug develops super seeds that grew into super plants to help feed the world.  Henry Wallace was the one who hired Norman because he wanted to help people grow more food.  And Henry was influenced by George Washington Carver who taught him all about plants.  It is referred to as the "butterfly effect."  We all affect our world.  Everything we do matters.  God made our lives important.

My three children (ages 5, 12, and 16) and husband enjoyed this book.  Although it was a little hard to keep who influenced who straight as we were reading, especially for my youngest.  The pictures were wonderful, and it did make it's point clearly.

I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
