“The Boy Who Changed the World” chronicles the lives of four boys. The first is Norman Borlang. While playing with his sisters in the cornfield, Norman comes up with the idea to feed the world.

The second is Henry Wallace. As a kid, he learned to respect nature. When he grew up, he became the U.S. secretary of agriculture.

The third boy was George Washington. His parents died when he was young and a nice family adopted him. He grew up to be a teacher and inventor.

The last boy was Moses Carver. When he grew up, he married a woman named Susan. They later adopted a boy named George Washington.

What do all these boys have in common? Well, you have to read the book yourself to find out.

This is a cute picture book with wonderful illustrations. There is a wonderful message in the book about hope and determination that both kids and adults will enjoy reading.

*I would like to thank Thomas Nelson for sending me a copy to review.
