)-- Miranda N. Prather, author of "Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape," donates copies of the popular children's book to Children's Books on Wheels and Reach out and Read at Boston Children's Primary Care Clinic. Both organizations seek to provide books to children, the primary audience of Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape. In particular, Prather hopes that the copies to children that are facing challenging circumstances in their own lives will give them comfort and strength through the inspirational story.
"Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape," published by Shoofly View, tells the life story of a blue-collar racehorse who overcame a devastating illness to survive and inspire thousands around the globe who were facing their own struggles and illnesses. The book features playful writing and delightful pictures, by Kentucky artist Hayley Mullins, that bring the tale of Blue Blue Sea to life. Blue Blue Sea was no American Pharaoh, but he became a hero just the same. To learn more and follow Blue Blue Sea's world visit: https://www.facebook.com/BlueBlueSeaOTTB.
Miranda N. Prather was born in Texas and grew up in Mississippi, Louisiana and Kentucky. The first horse she recalls following was Seattle Slew, who was born the same year she was, but it was Alydar that was her first horse racing love (and Blue Blue Sea’s great-grandsire). During her time in Kentucky, she took horseback riding lessons and owned an off-track Thoroughbred named Beble.
Founded in 2004, Children's Books on Wheels' mission is to promote reading in rural communities and urban communities by providing books to students and their families. Located in Montgomery County, Texas, has donated thousands of books to children, churches and other non-profits. They serve a population that sees 75% of people at or below poverty level.
A national program, Reach out and Read promotes school readiness and early literacy. The program helps to accomplish these goals by providing children books at different age milestones through their primary care physician; training to doctor's and nurses to be able to impress upon parents the importance of literacy and by having volunteers in waiting rooms to read to children and demonstrate the importance of reading. This model has been an important addition to the Boston Children's Primary Care Clinic, which has provided nearly a million books to children.
Shoofly View seeks to give authors honest feedback, and if an author presents a well-written, interesting book, the chance at publication. In late 2015, they published "Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape," their first book. They are currently looking at other book projects and plan an online journal to highlight the best in writing, art and photography.
