Atlanta, GA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/09/2007 -- Chosen from thousands of children’s books currently on the market, Tyler & His Solve-a-matic Machine (written by Jennifer Bouani and published by Bouje Publishing) has been honored with the nationally prestigious iParenting Media Award, The 2007 Excellent Products Call in Children’s Books. The highly respected iParenting Media’s Award Program is nationally recognized for applying the most rigorous and objective methods for determining the best products in the children’s media and juvenile products industry.

“Jennifer Bouani and the gift for writing for children” said TOP 10 REVIEWER Grady Harp. He added, “Every so often a new writer surfaces who along with the company of the likes of Roald Dahl, E.B. White, C.S. Lewis and others has the talent to speak to children about things adult in a manner that is not only informative and correct intelligently, but at the same time keeps in mind the importance of molding the realm of fantasy and tales that still focus the attention of all of us. Jennifer Bouani has the gift and in Tyler & His Solve-a-matic Machine she bows on stage as a skilled thinker and a consummate communicator.”

Tyler & His Solve-a-matic Machine (Bouje Publishing, ISBN-10: 0-9779265-0-8, ISBN-13: 9780977926503) is about an orphan boy who invents a machine to help him do his homework and creates a business to manufacture this machine. He must endure many tests set out for him by the Great Spirit of the Entrepreneurs, Soté, before he can officially become a successful business owner and realize his dream of sailing around the world. These tests are symbolic of obstacles encountered by adult entrepreneurs in the real world. They teach business concepts in a simple yet adventurous way showing them how to participate in and reap the rewards of our society.

The message crosses all geographic, gender, racial, and socioeconomic lines empowering kids to reach for their dreams while learning real life lessons. Some of the lessons covered in the story can make all the difference in a kid's future: the importance of dreaming big, protecting an idea, fighting doubts & building self-esteem, hiring the right people, finding the right real estate, networking, making money, and achieving success. "In today’s global marketplace of extreme competition," said Bouani, "It is critical more than ever that children learn early the principles of free market trade and how to become leaders in a society."

“Entertaining, educational, inspirational -- an absolutely brilliant book” said TOP 50 REVIEWER Daniel Jolley.

“ Fascinating book! This is a fast-moving, suspenseful adventure sure to capture the interest of intermediate-aged readers.” said Dr. Darlene W. Daffin, Elementary Administrator, Trinity Presbyterian School. “That the book also teaches basic business concepts in an unobtrusive way is a delightful extra!”
