Dolly Parton released the second episode of her 10-week Goodnight With Dolly book-reading video series via YouTube on April 9. Dolly treated viewers to a narration of her children’s book, Coat of Many Colors, which is based on her hit song of the same name.
Goodnight with Dolly features the country music icon reading select books from her Imagination Library. Dolly kicked off the weekly series on April 2 by reading “The Little Engine That Could.”
Dolly hopes the new series will provide comfort and reassurance to kids and families during the shelter-in-place mandates. Since its beginning in 1996 in Dolly’s hometown of Sevierville, Tenn., the Imagination Library has expanded into four countries serving more than 1 million children by providing a brand-new, age-appropriate book each month.
Tune in to Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library via YouTube at 6 p.m. CT on Thursdays.
