Today’s Solutions: May 25, 2022

If you’re looking to add some entertainment to your Thursday nights, Dolly Parton is now offering her “Goodnight With Dolly” readings at 7 pm E.T. on YouTube. The popular musician and philanthropist will read different children’s book each session for what will surely be an enjoyable bedtime experience for kids. 

Last week we shared a story about how many children’s book authors are doing similar programs. Parton is choosing her books from the Imagination Library project, her non-profit that aims to promote a love of reading by providing free books to children in the US, UK, Australia, and Ireland. Up first was The Little Engine That Could, by Watty Piper. 

This program offers another option for a fun activity for children and parents working hard to entertain children while schools and other after school activities are shut down to stop the spread of COVID-19. 

Parton is a strong advocate for the love of reading. Her non-profit work received special recognition from the Library of Congress and she has provided more than 130 million free books to children. Recently, Parton also donated $1 million to Vanderbilt University for coronavirus research.
