Goodnight with Dolly

Dolly Parton has announced a new weekly video series called “Goodnight with Dolly” on the Imagination Library’s YouTube page, which will feature the country singer reading children’s books for 10 weeks. The series launches April 2nd at 7:00 pm EST. Dolly said in a statement “This is something I have been wanting to do for quite a while, but the timing never felt quite right. I think it is pretty clear that now is the time to share a story and to share some love.”

(Here’s a list of the books she will be reading – a pair of her own books: I Am a Rainbow & Coat of Many Colors, along with There’s a Hole in the Log on the Bottom of the Lake by Loren Long; Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney; Pass It On by Sophy Henn; Stand Tall, Molly Lou Mellon by Patty Lovell; Violet the Pilot by Steve Breen; Max & the Tag-Along Moon by Floyd Cooper; Last Stop on Market Street by Matt de la Pena; and The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper, which is the premiere video already posted.)
