Hear local author and former Romper Room cast member Karen S. Robbins and celebrate her “Think!” board book series with activities and games from the Pierce County Library System.
Robbins discovered her passion and purpose early in her life as a teacher. At the age of 24, she was featured as “Miss Karen” on the Romper Room television program and has been entertaining and educating children her entire life.
Robbins’ colorful board books help toddlers and preschool age children learn colors, counting, size, differences, beginning reading and comprehension. They include fun flaps to test a child’s knowledge and increase language and math skills, along with developing small motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
