The Boy Who Changed the World – Children’s Book Review

The Boy Who Changed the World by Andy Andrews

The Boy Who Changed the World is a children’s book by Andy Andrews that illustrates how each person has the ability to use their strengths in a way that impacts others.  Mr. Andrews uses historical figures as examples of “ordinary children” who went on to do something special that benefitted others.   Mr. Andrews cleverly weaves one person’s story into another’s, thus showing how we ultimately impact other people & how this creates a multi-generational cycle of using our abilities to bring good to many people.  The book provides historical insight along with an empowering message for children.  The illustrations are delightful as well.  My one negative bit of feedback is that I felt that the repetitiveness that was supposed to link each story together got somewhat boring toward the end for a person like me who is not overly interested in history.  This would be a great book for an educational setting.
