Fayette County Kids are Zombies for National Photo Shoot
Film-friendly downtown Senoia is no longer the only place you can catch sight of zombies around town! Peachtree City children’s publisher Gallopade caused quite a stir over Spring Break last week when they brought in six Fayette County students for a bite-sized “zombie” photo shoot – complete with professional make-up, photography, and costume and set design. The photos are to be used as part of the award-winning publisher’s upcoming national campaign to promote reading to elementary and middle school aged children.
When asked about using zombies to promote reading, Gallopade’s creative team responded slyly, “What better way to make reading enticing to children? Even zombie kids love a great story!” Although it’s not your run-of-the-mill reading campaign, fans of Gallopade have grown to expect no less from the publisher’s not-so-typical spin on current trends.
Praised for her ability to build a lasting connection with children, nationally acclaimed author Carole Marsh, owner and CEO of Gallopade, has written thousands of books, both fiction and non-fiction, as well as other educational products for children. Media specialists around the country have commended Gallopade for the “Carole Marsh Reading Zone,” which features a collection of 9 series of fiction books for kids, ranging in reading levels from age 6-16. Gallopade’s star series, Real Kids! Real Places!,consists of 48 titles and features real kids as characters traveling to locations all over the United States.
