Benjamin started writing "books" when he was 5 years old. By the time he was 8, he had written over 100 books, including “Gregory’s Paper Airplane”. Revealing his entrepreneurial spirit, he opened up Ben's Bookstore in his bedroom and sells his books to willing customers (aka, Dad).
As a dad, of course, I think all of his books are awesome. But this one, which he originally titled "How a Guy Made Earth Beter by a Flyght of a Paper Airplane" (and which cost me $1, I might add), really touched me. Ben told me he wrote it after learning about the enslaved children in Cambodia one day at church. I was so moved by the compassion of the story; I knew I had to do something with it. Although I did some editing and tweaked the storyline, the vast majority of the book stays true to Benjamin’s original composition.
Our prayer is this story inspires you to help oppressed and less fortunate children.
