Book Review - The Boy Who Changed the World

We all have a calling.  Some call it your "life purpose", still others your "reason for living" and in France, they would say "raison d'être".
This book by Andy Andres recounts the life of a boy who discovers his reason for being.  

In looking for schools for my 11 year old and 13 year old to go to next fall, I'm amazed with the International Baccalaureate® (IB) Magnet School program in Tampa and their focus on world view and making a difference.

While I doubt that Andy's main character Norman went to an IB Magnet School, he later learns about the impact that one boy can make on the world.

Norman got his beginning by simply playing in the fields.  Later he would grow up and use his knowledge of agriculture to save the lives of two billion people. Two billion! Now that is a life purpose.

I have shared this sweet story with my son, in hopes that he will realize that he too can make a huge difference on the world.
