Goodnight with Dolly

Presented By

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library

Every Thursday 16:00

Beginning Thursday, April 2, 2020, musician Dolly Parton reads nightly bedtime stories to children on her Imagination Library YouTube channel.

From Imagination Library: Everyone’s favorite Book Lady is bringing children and families everywhere just what they need during a time of unrest. Goodnight With Dolly is a 10-week special series of weekly videos featuring Dolly Parton reading select Imagination Library books.

Goodnight with Dolly launches April 2, 2020, with the hope that this gift will further inspire a love of books and shared story-time during this important period. The weekly read-aloud series features several of the Imagination Library’s wonderful books including The Little Engine That Could. Watty Piper’s classic tale of a determined little engine has been an inspiration to generations.

This year (2020) marks the 90th Anniversary of The Little Engine That Could. For many years the story has been a source of inspiration for Dolly and it is the welcome book that all newly registered children in the U.S. and Canada receive when they sign up for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.

Dolly hopes this series of stories provides comfort and reassurance to kids and families during the shelter-in-place mandates.
