Book Review: The Boy Who Changed the World
I have two girls, aged 6 and 2.5. I have myself, aged too old to count. I love Andy Andrews’ writing. The match was perfect. Andy Andrews + Childrens book = Love at first sight. Obviously, this was one that I must read.
Well, I was partially right. The Boy Who Changed the World was definitely a book I should read, but I quickly realized that Andy Andrews is not a childrens book author.
The story was well told. The story of a young boy, who impacted one person’s life, who in turn impacted another, and so forth until you see the life of a prominent man in history whose life was ultimately affected by that young boy. A great story, as should be expected coming from Andy Andrews, however not necessarily a childrens book as one would expect. The illustrations were great, and again, the story was great, but I am having difficulty figuring out what age this book was intended for.
Overall, I would recommend this book. It is great to see how a small act can snowball into something so incredible. Definitely something that needs to be shared AND discussed. Buy the book and read it with your children talking through it as you go so that the dots can easily be connected.
