Did you know that the owner of Arabian Nights Dinner Show in Orlando, FL., Mark Miller, also co-founded The Black Stallion Literacy Foundation? That’s right, he did with Tim Farley, author Walter Farley’s son. The Black Stallion Literacy Foundation is based on the classic books of Walter Farley and the natural connection between children and horses. Conceived in 1999, BSLF began serving children in 2000 and since then, more than 400,000 children across the United States have participated in BSLF’s reading programs. BSLF is presently composed of both school-based and community programs, in which activities are developed around Walter Farley’s classic books. School-based programs consist of curriculum-based literacy programs for 1st and 4th-5th grades. Community programs are similarly curriculum-based literacy programs, but are turnkey embedded programs for after-school and summer camp programs.
Since its inception in 1999, BSLF has grown from fewer than 5,000 students participating in Florida and Arizona in 2000, to reaching over 66,720 students in the ten states across the nation. It also received recognition as a “Daily Point of Light” by President George W. Bush and has been featured on ABC Nightly News as the “best” motivational reading program for school-aged children. This is just the beginning of the list! BSLF is truly a one-of-a-kind program that sparks the imagination of children and shows them the joy in reading.
