About Nina Carothers: Nina Carothers, author of The Color Olors, first thought of the Color Olors back in 1993. Having 4 children of her own she realized there were so many lessons, in a fun way without realizing it, that a child could learn from her books. She decided to set the Color Olors aside in lieu of raising her family. Now, 20 years later she brings the Color Olors to life with the help of her illustrator, Chris Padovano.
As you read The Color Olors stories you will find, lessons and values within her books. They are both memorable and inspirational. Many books in the Color Olors series have been inspired by Nina’s own life experiences such as The book of Red Ed and The True Meaning of Christmas. This book comes from a Christmas that Nina shared with two of her children not long ago. The book of Silver Ilver and the Cleft Palate Puppy is a true story of Nina’s own cleft palate puppy and is told in a bibbidi bobbidi boo way.
Nina currently resides in Tarpon Springs, Florida with her youngest child still at home. She is blessed with 5 little grand babies that she calls her lovies. She hopes that you enjoy her stories, told from the heart, for many years to come. With a world of color out there is no telling how many books Nina will write.
When Silver Ilver realises that one of the puppies in her dog Princess’s litter is unwell she knows that she must look after it, but what should she do?
Well, with the help of her special book and a prayer she sets about feeding the little puppy, however she soon she realises there is something really wrong with this little fellow.
A trip to the puppy doctor gives her the answer, the puppy has a cleft palate and the doctor warns her that the outlook is bleak.
However, Silver Ilver refuses to give up on the little one and names him Zeus. She searches for ways to make him well and discovers there is another puppy, called Mia, who has a cleft palate too, and she’s owned by a lovely lady called Sue.
With help and guidance from the friendly Sue, soon Zeus is getting on fine and acting just like any other puppy, getting into all sorts of mischief.
The author has written a lovely, inspirational story and the book has been beautifully illustrated by Chris Padovano. It conveys wonderfully the very special message, that animals born with birth defects deserve a chance at a life too.
A portion of the proceeds of this book benefit The Mia Foundation. Yes, it’s not a fairytale – The Mia Foundation is real, and Sue and her helpers work tirelessly every day to rescue, care for and help dogs with all sorts of problems, and it all began with a little dog called Mia…
