Dolly Parton Reads MAX AND THE TAG-ALONG MOON on YouTube and Social Channels (4/23)
Dolly Parton’s weekly “Goodnight With Dolly” series continues as she reads Floyd Cooper’s MAX AND THE TAG-ALONG MOON (Puffin) on Thursday, April 23, at 8:00pm (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.
Floyd Cooper received the Coretta Scott King Award for The Blacker the Berry, three Coretta Scott King Honors for Brown Honey in Broomwheat Tea, Meet Danitra Brown, and I Have Heard of a Land, and an NAACP image award. In MAX AND THE TAG-ALONG MOON, his lush paintings perfectly capture the wonder of the moon, the love between grandfather and grandson, and that feeling of magic every child experiences when the moon follows him home.
“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.”
