Share this story with your world:

Dolly Parton’s weekly “Goodnight With Dolly” series continues as she reads her book COAT OF MANY COLORS , illustrated by Brooke Boynton Hughes (Grosset & Dunlap) on Thursday, April 9, at 7:00pm (ET) on YouTube and Imagination Library’s official social channels on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

“Goodnight With Dolly” features the award-winning singer- songwriter reading a series of Imagination Library books all carefully chosen for their appropriate content at this moment in time.

Dolly lends the lyrics of her classic song “Coat of Many Colors” to this heartfelt picture book for young readers. Her rural upbringing in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee provides the backdrop for this special picture book that tells the story of a young girl in need of a warm winter coat.

“This is something I have been wanting to do for quite a while,” Dolly Parton said, “but the timing never felt quite right. 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.”
