Stories Alive! with Karen Erickson
Young children take delight in hearing and acting stories, especially when they can share that experience with their mom, dad, grandparent, or caregiver. They let their imaginations soar as they transform into animals, objects, or other children like themselves; they find pleasure in the sheer fun of doing the actions and activities along with the characters they are meeting. With Karen, these stories come alive for a treasured experience.
