Myriah Perkins is a 5½ (later 6) year old sitting charge of the BSC. She has two younger sisters: Gabbie Perkins and Laura Perkins. Myriah is a member of the Perkins Family. Myriah lives on Bradford Court near Claudia Kishi.
She has blonde hair and brown eyes. Myriah has five missing teeth and a loose tooth.
She would race to the door when the baby-sitter comes. They always color at their baby table (a pink and white table with pictures of barbie dolls all over it). She and her sister like to memorize and sing along songs. They enjoy to "cook with real ingredients" and make their own recipes like green chocolate chip cookies.
Myriah has Kristy's old bedroom with pictures of animals and a poster of a ballerina on her wall, and a doll house. She's smart and takes all kinds of lessons such as tap, ballet, dancing, and swimming. She and Mary Anne Spier could see into each others bedrooms until Mary Anne moved into the Schafers' house after her father remarried.
She goes to Creative Theater at the Stoneybrook Community Center on Thursdays after kindergarten. The bus drops her off at the corner of Bradford and Elm street. Myriah can sing and has an amazing voice. She performed as the baby bear in "Goldilocks & the Three Bears." She is also a member of the kids' band that the BSC created called "All the Children of the World."
Myriah is a player on Kristy's Krushers and seems to understand baseball quite well.
