The Boy Who Changed The World by Andy Andrews

The Boy Who Changed The World tells the story of a man who invented special corn seeds that provided food for millions of people. But this man could never have invented the seeds without the help of the vice president, who never would have been interested in plants if he had not spent time as a child with a brilliant science student. And had the brilliant science student never been rescued from a kidnapping, he never would have known the child who eventually became the vice president who encouraged the inventor to create these special seeds. So who was really the one responsible for providing the food for millions of people? It's called The Butterfly Effect and it's the concept that everything we do affects everything else.

In The Boy Who Changed The World, Andy Andrews tells the story of this inventor who created the special seeds of corn to feed people. He narrates in a style that will engage children and is simple enough for young children to understand. The artwork on the cover and inside of the book by Philip Hurst is well done. I would recommend this book for ages 5 and up.
