The Boy Who Changed The World by Andy Andrews Book Review and Giveaway

Keep reading for the surprise…
it is at the bottom of this page!
World Changer 
The Boy Who Changed the World
by Andy Andrews
Retail Price: $16.99 US (Hardcover)
ISBN-13: 978-1-4003-1605-2 

From the Publisher:
The Boy Who Changed the World teaches children how
their actions can set off a spark that, in turn, influences
the lives of others. As Andrews explains, “Every choice
you make, good or bad, can make a difference.”  Who would dream that a boy playing in Iowa cornfields would save the lives of more than two billion people?
This is the incredible story of Nobel laureate Norman Borlaug, a simple boy with a desire to feed the hungry—but Borlaug couldn’t have accomplished this without the help of Vice President Henry Wallace, who was influenced by inventor George Washington Carver,
who in turn was rescued by farmer Moses Carver.
This delightfully illustrated children’s book tells the
stories of how each life is interwoven by decisions—both
big and small—of others. These stories show that the
decisions you make today truly can change the world.
My Review:
I love how this book uses history to tell a story!  My kids not only learned that every one of their action could have effect on others but it could “change the world’.
It really was a simple book was a major message!
The pictures were beautiful as well!  Even my 4 year old – got this book!  (He did tell me he thought it was kind of long after the 2nd time he begged me to read it.)
This would be a great book to add to any library!  I could just see some kid who doesn’t have much - getting this book and his and the world’s life change forever!
