Review for It's About the Kids Education Organization Inc, Baltimore, MD, USA
I helped Bubbles The Clown set up the magic tricks and props at two of his financial literacy performances. I saw his program at a recreation center and at a school. At the recreation center, there were about 30 children who ranged in age from 4 -8 years old. The children had a great time, and were engrossed in the program. They appeared to absorb the financial education information. The second event was at a school auditorium where there were about 125 children in grades K - 2. The program worked well in the large setting, also. I imagined that it would be difficult keeping the attention and involvement of such a large group of children for one hour. But, the kids loved it!

The magic words for the magic tricks was "save money." When asked at the end of the show what they had learned, the kids said, "save money."
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
i would try to get more volunteers, and to get help raising more money to increase the reach of the organization's programs.
