Laura Perricone is the author of several children's and young adult novels. She was the recipient of the Governor's Award for Excellence in Teaching Economics. Her books have received superb reviews and commendations from standout members of the business community, including legendary philanthropist Gus A. Stavros, of the Stavros Center of Free Enterprise and Economic Education. Laura has completed 2 works in her “Entrepreneur Series”, 6th Grade Entrepreneurs and 8th Grade C-E-Oh! The books she has created for elementary and middle-school age children serve to educate children from a young age regarding the wisdom of understanding business and general personal finance.
The innovative approach exposes children to important concepts of the free-enterprise system, economics, personal finance, and the importance of career choices through a plot and characters young people can relate to. They learn about entrepreneurship in the form of age-appropriate business model conception, development, and implementation. The project in 6th Grade Entrepreneurs offers children the opportunity to become inculcated with inspiration and knowledge that can be adapted to also raise funds for their schools through their efforts.
