Dolly Parton is launching a weekly online series where she’ll read a book for children at bedtime.
Goodnight with Dolly will see the iconic singer reading books from her Imagination Library project. The video will be free to watch.
“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,” said Parton. “It is an honour 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 10-week series will launch with The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper.
The other books to be read in include: 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 Colours by Dolly Parton.
The readings will launch on 2nd April at 7pm Eastern Time via Imagination Library’s YouTube channel.
