SHARON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — One Sharon woman is combining her love of performing and storytelling with a children's book.
Sally Rae Rogers decided to write a children's book at the age of 71. Rogers told WBZ's Suzanne Sausville that she felt getting around has gotten more difficult as she has gotten older and wanted to write a book about a boy that can relate.
"He's like a Jewish Tom Thumb and he's so tiny that his father calls him little yarmulke," Rogers said.
In her book, she tells the adventures of a boy that is so small he sits on his father's head. Rogers read her book aloud to Sausville, using different voices to animate the characters as she read.
Performing is not unfamiliar to her, as she used to tell stories and perform at nursing homes.
"Interacting with people, it's an energy, an energy flow that's so beautiful," she said.
Rogers is looking for an illustrator and publisher to help bring her book to life for others.
