Erinn Knoten’s new illustrated children’s bookNickelas the Lost Nickel” (published by AuthorHouse) teaches children the value of money, how money is used, what it feels like to be lost and what it feels like to find a place in life.

Nickelas the nickel finds himself lost on the street as cars and trucks go zooming past. Nickelas hopes to be found as he reminisces about all of his life adventures. His circulating journey finally brings him into the hands of a new owner, who gives Nickelas a happy home.

The story of Nickelas is one that Knoten has been working on for some time. “I actually wrote this book in 1994 when I was 15 in a ninth grade English class,” Knoten says. “My family never had a lot of money, so saving was always emphasized to eventually accumulate enough for something worthwhile. I had a musical piggy bank which I still have today at age 33! I guess any kid and even some adults get excited to find money on the ground.”
