"Ruby’s Troupe was great! Debbie and Phyllis are real professionals and do an excellent job promoting books and literacy!!

Ruby’s Troupe has a great rapport with the audiences - young and old. Seeing the smiles on their faces was pure magic!!"

Cindy Donaldson - Kelso Public Library Library Manager/Children & Young Adult Services Coordinator

Our church has had the privilege of hosting 'Ruby's Troupe" live on several occasions with excellent results!

The children who had the opportunity to view the shows were fully engaged, participating with laughter and enthusiasm. The themes presented were instructional and entertaining...and filled with quality and diversity of content.

I highly recommend the viewing of this material for children in either individual home viewing, or as a group or classroom activity.

Remember: Besides empowering your child with key core money skills with laughter and fun learning, you are also supporting Ruby and her mission to help others in need...

90% of Ruby's Troupe net profits are donated to charities near and far. You can learn more here.

So, you are already being a "savvy shopper" (yeah!) and you'll feel doubly good about all the fun you'll have with "Smart Money Commanders"
