The Kid Who Changed the World teaches children how their actions can set off a spark that, in turn, influences the lives of others. As Andrews explains, “Every choice you make, good or bad, can make a difference.”
Who would dream that a kid playing in Iowa cornfields would save the lives of more than two billion people? This is the incredible story of Nobel laureate Norman Borlaug, a simple kid with a desire to feed the hungry — but Borlaug couldn’t have accomplished this without the help of Vice President Henry Wallace, who was influenced by inventor George Washington Carver, who in turn was rescued by farmer Moses Carver.
This delightfully illustrated children’s book tells the stories of how each life is interwoven by decisions — both big and small — of others. These stories show that the decisions you make today truly can change the world. As George Washington Carver told young Henry Wallace, “Remember…God made you to make a difference. And I believe you will.”
Based on Andrews’ popular book The Butterfly Effect, this beautifully illustrated children’s story features butterflies on each page that children will be delighted to find, culminating with a flourish of butterflies and a charge to children that they, too, can change the world.
The Kid Who Changed the World reveals the incredible truth that everything YOU do matters — what you did yesterday, what you do today, and what you will do tomorrow. Every choice you make, good or bad, can make a difference. In this engaging tale, bestselling author Andy Andrews shows children that every action, however big or small, can have a ripple effect around the world.

From the Pages of the Book
Norman ran to hide in the field, careful not to knock down any cornstalks. Just yesterday, his father reminded him, “You know, son, we’re blessed to have all this corn. There are many people in this world who do not have enough to eat.”
What would it be like to be hungry all the time? Norman wondered as he looked at the endless rows of corn. There has to be a way this corn can feed the hungry people, he thought.
Right then and there, Norman decided to change the world.
