I thought this book was a really sweet book. I read it to my kids last night before bed and they all enjoyed it. Shoot, even I enjoyed it.
It's about a boy who changed the world by saving over 2 billion peoples lives.... but was HE the one who saved the world? Or was it the man who influenced the boy to do what God had called him to do? Or maybe it was the man who inspired the man who influenced the boy?
This book has a definite "It's a Wonderful Life" point of view behind it. How each persons life influences another and how we couldn't achieve what God had called us to do if that person hadn't influenced us.
It's a really sweet story and by the end of it my kids were saying, "Well, which one of them changed the world then?!" It led us into a great conversation about how each of the people who influenced the other all get credit for changing the world, not just the boy who saved the 2 billion people.

This engaging story reveals the incredible truth that everything we do matters! Based on The Butterfly Effect, Andy’s timeless tale shows children that even the smallest of our actions can affect all of humanity. The book is beautifully illustrated and shares the stories of Nobel Laureate Norman Borlaug, Vice President Henry Wallace, Inventor George Washington Carver, and Farmer Moses Carver. Through the stories of each, a different butterfly will appear. The book will end with a flourish of butterflies and a charge to the child that they, too, can be the boy or girl who changes the world.Thank you to Thomas Nelson for sending me this book for review as a part of their Book Sneeze program for bloggers in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation.
