Dolly Parton's Imagination Library
I like books. And I like Dolly Parton. She's a talented woman and an amazing songwriter and musician. Some people can't get past the boobs and 9 to 5, but I'm getting off track. The point is, if I hadn't found myself at Dollywood one steamy summer day in the Great Smoky Mountain region of Tennessee, I wouldn't know about her book thang. Umm...The Dolly Parton Imagination Library to be more specific. She had this idea to give a book each month to every child born in her home county from birth to age five. It's a pretty nifty idea, I think. You can find out more, including how to start this in your own community at http://www.dollysimaginationlibrary.com/howworks.php.
And if you want to hear a different side of Dolly, check out my two favorite albums of hers: The Grass is Blue and Little Sparrow. And that means you! You'll like it, trust me.
