Music Library of Congress

With many parents scrambling to provide their children with a routine and sense of security as the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic, the woman known as the Queen of Country plans to step in to help fill some of those gaps.

Dolly Parton has announced a new weekly video series where she will be reading children's books. Each book will be carefully selected from Dolly's Imagination Library - a literary programme set up in 1995 which has donated more than 135 million books to children. Parton will stream all Good Night events with Dolly on her Facebook page for Dolly & # 39; s Imagination Library. The inaugural episode will launch Thursday, April 2 and continue every Thursday for 10 weeks.

"I think God is in this, I really do", Parton says, adding that she believes God has a positive lesson of love and acceptance to be learned.

As the music industry icon serenaded us with timeless songs "I Will Always Love You" and "Jolene", the 74-year-old hyphenate will now lull audiences worldwide with her bedtime stories on behalf of her Imagination Library. 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".

Country legend Dolly Parton offered an inspiring message to her fans about the severity of the Chinese coronavirus, urging people to show bravery while in isolation and know that God loves them during these challenging times. What began as a local book distribution program in Parton's home county in Tennessee has since grown to an global program available all across the United States, Canada, the UK, Ireland, and Australia. The read alongs will be a personal gift from Dolly to all families. It is also the welcome book that Imagination Library sends to all of their newly registered children in the U.S and Canada.
