The EBook version of Earning Excitement is a beautiful color storybook custom-formatted for Nook readers, with searchable text and re-sizable images. Engaging original color illustrations on every page bring this financial story to life for young readers 7-12 years.

Kids want things that they don't have. But when should they stop asking for things and earn them instead? Earning Excitement is a story about creativity, patience, self-sufficiency, and the steps kids can take to earn something.

One of five books in the series "Marvels of Money ... for kids"; richly illustrated, engaging and practical stories for young readers about the fundamentals of money. Each story in the series includes essential financial words, which are highlighted throughout each story and then defined in a glossary along with summary concepts at the end of each story. 3rd-6th grade level readers will find the 2,500 word story and numerical examples great for reading, mathematics, social sciences and financial literacy!

This book supports emerging educational (K-5) learning standards, integrating "life skills" and "reasoning skills" into the fictional but realistic financial literacy stories. The State Of Oregon recently acquired "Spending Success" and "Earning Excitement" for every elementary school in their state as part of their "Reading is an Investment" program!

Younger (K-2) readers may skim the concepts in a picture book manner, as there are incredible illustrations on each page. Great read-along and discussion books! Messages to last a lifetime.

Each EBook is also available as a beautiful color hardcover book, directly from the Author/Publisher, FarBeyond Publishing!

About the Author

A leading national financial consultant and father of three, author Paul Nourigat is deeply invested in the purpose of helping young Americans become independent through financial competencies, life skills and the resulting self-esteem.

"Improving financial literacy is one of the greatest opportunities in America" says Nourigat. Over 28 years, he has advised thousands of families and business leaders on financial strategies. He heard two recurring themes ...... "Most adults wish they had learned more about personal finance earlier in life. Equally common is their concern for future generation's welfare, given global competition and a challenging economy." However, adults have always struggled to teach financial fundamentals and disciplines to the next generation. in 2010, Nourigat set out on a mission to fill the gaps, with innovative and engaging books which bring financial concepts to life.

Nourigat's newest title (No Time To Wander) is for adults in their 20's & 30's who are striving to establish financial independence; using an engaging, non-fiction style, he lays out the financial essentials in a straight-forward manner, while addressing personal topics rarely discussed in financial conversations. Over the past 36 months, Nourigat has released eight books on Amazon to provide youth (k12) with financial context using an innovative blend of fictional stories, vivid illustrations, and age-appropriate financial messaging; each title blends financial lessons with imaginative - but relevant - settings and characters. His books are now in homes, schools and libraries throughout the US.

To help him bring his messages to life, Nourigat commissioned artists across America to create over 600 original illustrations. See current news and announcements from readers, schools, libraries and government agencies at www.farbeyond.com/press.html or www.facebook.com/paul.nourigat
