“The Butterfly Effect” by Andy Andrews

The Butterfly Effect is well known due to short stories, movies, and the like. Whether it’s “Heroes,” or “Butterfly Effect,” or “Sound of Thunder,” the media outlet is consumed by the simple concept that every move you make matters. Scientifically, it is considered a law, known as The Law of Sensitive Dependence Upon Initial Conditions. In essence, Andrews introduces the fact that we all are part of the Butterfly effect – who we are and what we do impacts more greatly than we’ll ever know.

 

Published about the same time as his children’s tale, “The Boy Who Changed the World,” Andrews provides a simplistic and adult method of motivation – that of short pages, covering great inspiration and hope. Unfortunately priced rather high, Andrews successfully provides another hit – great motivation without scriptural support. While not necessary for the publisher’s market, it would be nice to see such support in a “Christian inspiration” book.

“The Boy Who Changed the World” by Andy Andrews

The Boy Who Changed the World is an excellent children’s book of the butterfly effect. For children who are older, around ages seven to ten, this book features full-paged colors and a catchy tale to show the importance of everyone. Covering Norman, the man who extended the survivability of vegetables, to Henry, who promoted the concept, to the famed George Washington Carver.

 

Overall, I found this book to be motivational and inspiring for children. From the point of two years, pointing out the colorful pictures, to even adults today, this illuminated book gives everyone the inspiration they need: you can make a difference.

“The Heavens Proclaim His Glory”

“The Heavens Proclaim His Glory” is amazing! This book if filled with spiritual quotes, G-d’s Word, and pictures from the Hubble Space Telescope. It certainly is a large collection of beautiful images of His Creation, with fitting and appropriate references to G-d throughout. I opted to review this book with my son, but it seems he is a tad young. However, I know he’ll love it once he gets a little older. It’s astounding how beautiful space is, that we can’t see.
