Dolly Parton is hoping to bring comfort to the young fans of her Imagination Library program in the coming weeks by reading bedtime stories aloud on YouTube.
Dubbed “Goodnight with Dolly” the 10-week series will feature the iconic entertainer reading various books from the program to children and their families. The series will begin on Thursday, April 2 at 7 pm EST with the book The Little Engine That Could.
“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. It is an honor for me to share the incredible talent of these authors and illustrators. They make us smile, they make us laugh and they make us think.”
The series will also feature readings of There’s a Hole in the Log on the Bottom of the Lake by Loren Long, Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney, I Am a Rainbow by Dolly Parton, 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 Peña and Coat of Many Colors by Dolly Parton.
