Local author offers words of encouragement

NATIcK

Barbara McGrath, a Natick resident, recently spoke to a first-grade class in Oneonta, N.Y., about writing and likened it to sports.

McGrath, the author of "The Baseball Counting Book" and "Soccer Counts," was on hand for the celebration of National Children's Book Week, the Daily Star of Oneonta reports.
