Dolly Parton Set To Launch Weekly Bedtime Stories For Quarantined Children
“Goodnight With Dolly” will feature Dolly Parton reading a series of Imagination Library books all carefully chosen for their appropriate content at this moment in time.
“This 10-week series will focus on comforting and reassuring children during the shelter-in-place mandates. Dolly hopes these videos will provide a welcomed distraction during a time of unrest and also inspire a love of reading and books in the hearts of the children who see them,” the organization said in a statement.
Dolly is so wonderful. Gotta love her and her gigantic heart!💖
Country music legend Dolly Parton will this week launch a bedtime reading series aimed at relaxing children as the Chinese coronavirus continues to force school closures across America.
The series, named Goodnight with Dolly, will launch on Thursday under her nonprofit organization, Imagination Library, which provides children with free books around the world.
The series will air every Thursday at 7:00 p.m. EST for 10 weeks, featuring titles include The Little Engine That Could, There’s a Hole in the Log on the Bottom of the Lake, Llama Llama Red Pajama, and I Am a Rainbow, which Parton wrote herself.
“The read-along will be a personal gift from Dolly to all families,” the organization said. “Free of charge but not free from obligation as the message will be to pass on the love and keep hope alive because we are all together, you and I.” More
Finally, a celebrity who is doing something positive to help out. Dolly is an exception to the rule as her fame and fortune never interfered with her goodness and humility. Thank you, Miss Parton.
