This might be the very best thing since sliced bread! Launching April 2nd, queer icon, and country music legend, Dolly Parton will be bringing story time to people's houses.
Titled Goodnight With Dolly, the new online series will see the singer read children's books online to help bring some reprieve for parents who faced with their children home 24/7 due to social distancing restrictions.
"This is something I have been wanting to do for quite a while, but the timing never felt quite right," She said in a statement. "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."
In addition to her own books, Coat of Many Colours and I am Rainbow, the booklist that she will be reading from includes, There's a Hole in the Log on the Bottom of the Lake by Loren Long; Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney; 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 The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper.
I don' know about you, but I'd have the kids at the kitchen table doing their homework, while I would be the one enjoying story time with Aunt Dolly. This is probably a good reason while I don't have kids.
Goodnight With Dolly will air on Parton's YouTube channel for her Imagination Library at 7pm EST April 2nd and will run for ten weeks.
While you wait, enjoy this piece of goodness to tide you over.
Aw so wholesome! I may not have kids, but I will definitely be tuning in.
What about you?
