Dolly Parton, How ’bout That

If you haven’t been able to guess by now, reading is really important to our family.

I remember going shopping with my parents and my grandmother when I was little and I would often go to the bookstore with my Dad while my Mom and Grandmother went to look for clothes.

Each summer I would look forward to going to the library with my Mom to pick out new books each week to read.

Both my husband and I are trying to instill the love of reading to our Mousekatot.

In previous entries I have talked about some of our favorite books and other things connected to reading, but I really wanted to do an entry about what I think is a really great program: The Dolly Parton Imagination Library.

The program, that is available in various communities throughout the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada.

Once you find out if your child is eligible by going here you can register them for the program.

The program is open to children from birth to age five and each month they will receive a free book in the mail. So by the time your kiddo is five they can have 60 books which makes a really nice collection.

We have received a variety of both paperback and hardcover books from the program. They are all chosen based on age and reading level that would be appropriate for your child.

If you have not checked to see if your child is eligible or you haven’t signed up your child yet, you should really consider the program.


It is a great way to grow a wonderful library for your little Mousekatot without draining your bank account.
