We hope you haven’t forgotten that Dolly Parton is a saint—and if it wasn’t already clear enough, let her new video series Goodnight with Dolly prove it. Starting tonight, Dolly Parton will be reading bedtime stories every week to kids via the internet.
The 10 installments will air every Thursday at 6:00 p.m. CST, starting with The Little Engine That Could, later tonight.
The announcement came straight from Dolly herself, who will be streaming from the Dolly Parton Imaginary Library:
I hope this gift will further inspire a love of books and shared story time during this important time. From everyone on our team, thank you so much for inspiring a love of reading in your family. As I always say — We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails — and we’re going to do just that, together.
It’s no secret that Dolly Parton wants kids to read. Her book gifting program, driven by her father’s illiteracy, hit the 100 million mark in donations back in 2018. We’re glad she’s keeping people busy with these new videos.
