As the founder of the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship and one of the leading experts on youth entrepreneurship education, I know how complicated this subject can be for children. Unlike many financial or business books written for children, this one approaches kids at their level with an engaging story and plenty of mystery & suspense. She actually gets kids excited about becoming entrepreneurs themselves, and thats an amazing accomplishment. In addition, it is a wonderful introduction to free-market capitalism. It should be a part of American school curricula and every familys library, because it sets the basic foundation that every kid needs to build a successful future. --Steve Mariotti Founder of the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE)Entrepreneurship is the backbone of our economy, yet entrepreneurship is not a subject kids are actively taught. That is what makes Bouanis series so important. She is teaching kids about an important concept and delivers valuable lessons in a fun and engaging way. The Future Business Leaders Series prepares kids for the changing economy and gets them excited about entrepreneurship. --Natalie MacNeil, Founder of SheTakesOnTheWorld.com & Co-founder of GarageEntrepreneurs.comThe lessons in this book will help a new generation of entrepreneurs,By Jonathan Ortmans, Sr. Fellow, Kauffman Foundation:“Developing the human capital of young Americans is vital to keep America’s entrepreneurial economy growing. An important goal in our kids’ education should be to infuse early on entrepreneurial skills, such as opportunity-recognition and risk-taking. This book contributes to this goal. The story takes the young reader on an adventure—much like that of a real-life entrepreneur—learning lessons in an interactive and engaging way. As Tyler works to develop his idea into a business, each problem he faces is cleverly put into a riddle, giving both Tyler and the reader an opportunity to develop creative-thinking and problem-solving skills. These are vital skills for young people to have, whether or not they end up becoming entrepreneurs. At the same time, tangible business lessons are learned, such as how to find capital, how to negotiate wages, and when to trust a business partner. In the future, more than any time in history, in their passion to do good and do well, young people will get involved at some point in their career in a start-up. The intellectual lessons in this book will help a new generation of entrepreneurs, so that they may be inspired to unleash their ideas and make a difference in their world.”An easy, fun way for parents to spark & foster children’s entrepreneurial spirit,By Jack Harris, President, Junior Achievement of Georgia: “As an organization that focuses on teaching young people about entrepreneurship, parents frequently ask us for additional resources they can use at home. Tyler & His Solve-a-Matic Machine is an easy, fun way for parents to spark and foster children’s entrepreneurial spirit. Children relate to the engaging characters and understand that they too can make their dreams into reality.”Wyatt, Tyler s funny friend, has caused quite a stir at the Nessibus Airport. Laughter roars from his airport comedy club where travelers, waiting for their planes to depart, get a chance to catch an exciting show. Like Tyler and Giselle before him, Wyatt plunges into a set of adventures that show him how expand his business.
