Since 1967, Dolly Parton has made her mark on the world with her multiple hit songs and albums and all of the philanthropic work she has partaken in. This Tennessee artist never ceases to amaze the world with her ideas and she's just announced a brand new one. Dolly Parton is reading bedtime stories every week to put a smile on faces around the world.
Starting Thursday, April 2, Dolly Parton is launching "Goodnight With Dolly." This will be a 10-week series that'll be perfect for a virtual slumber party.
The books being used are from her non-profit Imagination Library, a project geared towards giving children quality reading material. The project operates in the U.S., Australia, Ireland, and the U.K.
Whether you're five or 25, anyone can enjoy this new virtual reading by the Southern queen herself. You might even feel like you're back in simpler times of childhood ease.
This nonprofit has delivered more than 130 million free books to children, according to NPR.
Imagination Library began right here in Dolly's home state of Tennessee in 1995 and has gained national and global recognition over the years.
You can listen to these readings on the official YouTube channel. A few stories that'll be read include:
The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper.
There's a Hole in the Log on the Bottom of the Lake by Loren Long
I Am a Rainbow by Dolly Parton
Pass It On by Sophy Henn
Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney
Tune in at 7:00 p.m. ET on April 2 to experience this first-ever virtual reading by Dolly Parton herself. You'll be transported back to your childhood and fall asleep to Dolly's voice.
