I was given the opportunity to review the book The Boy Who Changed the World by Andy Andrews. This book is the children’s version of his amazing story The Butterfly Effect. I am an enormous fan of Andy’s and have heard him tell the story in person and have also read the book, so I was very excited when given the opportunity to review the children’s book.
The illustrations in this story our amazing. The pages are filled with bright colors that delight the eye and capture the imagination. Of course there are beautiful butterflies adorning the pages and reinforcing the idea of human beings flapping their wings and having actions positively effect others.
As much as I love the adult version of this book, I found the children’s version to be a little disjointed and feel that perhaps this story might be a little hard for the average child to comprehend and grasp on their own. This book would be great for a parent to read to their child and follow up with discussion.
