On Thursday, April 2nd, Dolly Parton will air her first installment of Goodnight With Dolly, a video series that will feature Parton reading children’s stories through Imagination Library’s Youtube Page. Parton wants to read to children to ease them of their worries during the COVID-19 pandemic. On a video posted through her Facebook page, she states that ‘Goodnight with Dolly’ will give children “a welcomed distraction during a time of unrest.”
Parton did not mention a schedule for the days she would be reading stories, but she did provide a list of books selected from Imagination Library. Stories such as; The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper, Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney, and Partons own books I Am a Rainbow and Coat of Many Colors will be read during the ten week series.
For all my parents out there, take this time to snuggle up with your children and enjoy some hot cocoa. I know I’m in my twenty-somethings, but I wouldn’t want to miss a bedtime story, especially from Dolly Parton!
