Dolly Parton's Imagination Library

Have you heard of Dolly Parton's Imagination Library? The program being implemented in the state of TN and 42 more states in the US to promote the pleasure of reading on children.. It’s helping every child, regardless income to own a book and library at home by providing free books to children from birth until they are five years old. One book is mailed to the child’s home every month. How cool is that?

I have my son enrolled in the program about three months ago and he has received his second books last week. Billy already has a pretty big collection of books but it is also nice to receive free books to add to his small library.

So if you are parents of a preschooler and living in TN, make sure you enroll your child in the program. Every child under 5 years old is eligible. You can get the form from your public library or register your child online at Dolly Parton's Imagination Library. It is a great program. Thank you to Dolly Parton. She is really a real diva.

The Imagination Library is also implemented in Canada and the UK. So parents in Canada and the UK, if you would like to enroll your preschooler, check the Imagination Library site out. :D




Thanks Dolly Parton for the books.

Hi Cay,

Yes, really nice kan. Unfortunately, for now her Imagination Library are available only in the US and some part of Canada and the UK.
Bagus kan kalau ada yang mau buat the same thing in M'sia esp for the children in the rural area.

Have a great weekend Cay!

Yes, it is a great program. Wish more rich people would do the same thing esp to the children in the third world countries.

Have a nice weekend, James!

I really think that this program should be implemented in our home country especially to those poor rural areas in Sabah. I do believe that we have lots of "Millionnaires in Malaysia" who can help out... but ... ah well.
Bless Your Heart Dolly Parton. Thanks for sharing Hilda.

Billy's Mom said...

Yeah, I wish the same thing too, Dora. Siti Nurhaliza, perhaps?

Billy's Mom said...

Sure...Sue!
