About the Book

An inspirational children’s story... ...written by a child... ...to help other children. After learning about underprivileged children in Cambodia, Gregory's heart is troubled. He decides to take action and help in the best way he knows how... A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will go towards Agape International Missions (Agapewebsite.org), a not-for-profit organization who’s mission is to prevent child sex trafficking in Cambodia and to restore hope to its victims through holistic aftercare; and to International Justice Mission (IJM.org), a not-for-profit human rights agency that secures rescue and justice for victims of slavery and other forms of violent oppression, and helps them heal within their own communities in Cambodia and other countries in the developing world.


About the Author

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. Ben’s Dad
