Carole Marsh Nominated as Georgia Author of the Year

Michele Yother, President of Gallopade International, announced today that local author Carole Marsh has been nominated as Georgia Author of the Year for Children’s Books by the Georgia Writer’s Association.

Marsh’s newest children’s fiction book MARY AMERICA: First Girl President of the United States is the story of an orphan girl who becomes the president at age 12, through a fluke in the law and a high IQ. “This seemed like the perfect time for a book that helps children understand what a big job it is being president, while being entertained by how somebody their age would handle the job. I’m also passionate about subject matter that helps children dream big dreams,” Marsh adds.

Marsh has been writing since 1979 and has hundreds of titles in print.  Previously, she has been named Communicator of the Year, received Learning Magazine’s Teacher’s Choice for the Classroom award, the iParenting Award for Greatest Products, Excellence in Education award, and honored for Best Family Books by Learning Magazine.  Midwest Book Review called her mysteries for children “true gems of education and entertainment for young readers.”

Award-Winning Author Writes Civil War Field Trip Activity Book

“With the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War starting in 2011, it is a truly teachable “four-year” moment for kids to understand that history has happened all around them! All they need to do is take a step out their backdoor!” says award-winning author Carole Marsh. Nothing will leave a better impression then seeing some of the sights where the soldiers fought and made history.

The Civil War Field Trip Activity Book is filled with activities for kids at or on the way home from a Civil War field trip. The book’s activities include scavenger hunts, coded messages, word scrambles, matching problems, civil war math problems, fill-in-the-blanks, and more!

There are so many Civil War sites to visit, and the new book from Marsh makes field trips and family outings even more interesting and educational for kids. The book’s kid-friendly format helps make the most out of visiting Civil War sites! With summer right around the corner, many people are making plans to visit Civil War battlefields near and far.
