Andy Andrews has put out a new smalll gift book that is just lovely... it talks about "The Butterfly Effect" ... & Yes, I too thought, "isnt that a movie with Ashton Kutcher?"... yes it is & no, Ashton isnt part of this book. :)
But the idea of the butterfly effect is that the smallest differences, smallest changes, smallest motions can cause the biggest changes in conditions... such a neat idea
The Butterfly Effect is a small book that gives some stories of real people and of this idea... with beautiful pictures & subtle words... It only takes a minutes out of your day to read this whole book but the point is made over & over:
EVERY SINGLE THING YOU DO MATTERS!!!
Mr. Andrews also wrote a childrens book with the same idea, called The Boy who Changed the World... I was so excited to get this for our grandson. He will be coming up for a visit in October & I'll most definitely be reading this to him. The story is similar to the gift book, but with wonderful illustrations that are beautiful & captivating to the eye.
I love the idea of having children realize from such a young age of the impact they can make on the world.
All of it goes back to this quote in the book:
"There are generation yet unborn whose very lives will be shifted & shaped by the moves you make & the actions you take today. And tomorrow. And the next day. And the next.
I most definitely recommend these books - for a gift of reminding for adults & a gift of teaching for young hearts that need to know the power they hold in their actions.
