Dolly Parton Reads LAST STOP ON MARKET STREET on YouTube and Social Channels (5/7)
Dolly Parton’s weekly “Goodnight With Dolly” series continues as she reads LAST STOP ON MARKET STREET by Matt de la Peña, illustrated by Christian Robinson (Putnam Books for Young Readers), on Thursday, May 7, 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.
Winner of the 2016 Newbery Medal, a 2016 Caldecott Honor Book, and a 2016 Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor Book, LAST STOP ON MARKET STREET is an energetic ride through a bustling city that highlights the wonderful perspective only grandparent and grandchild can share, and comes to life through Matt de la Pena’s vibrant text and Christian Robinson’s radiant illustrations.
“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.”
