Longtime readers of this blog know of our admiration for Dolly Parton. Not only is she one of the legends of country music (and that hair!!), but Dolly is also a tireless champion for literacy, and her Imagination Library has given away over 100 million books to children. In these trying times, Dolly is here for us once again, offering a weekly bedtime story for children, the premier episode below, The LIttle Engine That Could. Great for kids, and great for stressed adults, looking for some soothing comfort.
