Parton Me

Everyone knows who Dolly Parton is so no introduction is needed. She is known for something other than her double Ds. She started a reading program that has expanded across the USA. A friend of mine who is a former children's librarian told me about this program. The program is called Dolly Parton's Imagination Library. It is not available in all areas across the country-only if your local community funds the program. You can enter your zip code to see if your community participates. If your community does, you can sign your child up and at no cost to you, they will send your child a new book every month. The first book your child will receive is the children's classic The Little Engine That Could and the last book that they will receive when they turn five is Look Out Kindergarten Here I Come. What a great way to promote literacy!
