If “Dumplin” is on your must-watch COVID-19 binge list, you’re going to love this news…
Dolly Parton is launching a 10-week “Goodnight with Dolly” virtual story time this Thursday (April 2). Kids can tune at 7 PM EDT to watch the self-proclaimed “Book Lady” read a story from her Imagination Library. And honestly — although she calls herself The Book Lady — we really can’t argue with her. Her library has given over 100 million books to children all around the world.
But this will be the first time the Book Lady has gone virtual.
“This is something I have been wanting to do for quite a while,” said Dolly. “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 feature “The Little Engine That Could,” by Watty Piper, “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.
