I have a Review and Giveaway today of “The Kid Who Changed the World” by Andy Andrews, illustrated by Philip Hurst, and published by Tommy Nelson.
The book tells the story of a kid who had a dream and how his dream came to fruition through those who came before him. This children’s book is based on Andrews’ book “The Butterfly Effect.” Decisions we make (and encourage our children to make) can change the world.
And that’s what happened with Norman Borlang. Never heard of him? He had a desire to feed the hungry and through the influence of his mentor Henry Wallace, he made some special seeds that would grow into super plants that would feed more people than ordinary plants.
But Henry was mentored by George–George Washington Carver that is. And George was adopted by Moses and Susan Carver. All of these people were necessary for Norman’s dream to come true!
The basic message of the story is that little things can make a big difference if God is in them! Everyone can do something that will change the world.
This is a beautiful and inspirational book for kids, ages 8-12. It’s hardback with a cover and has lovely illustrations.
Now it’s time to enter the giveaway! Enter through the Rafflecopter app below. The winner will be chosen on June 6, 2014 and will have 24 hours to respond to my email. U.S. only, 18+
