A wonderful program to inspire children to read and families to share time together, and we all know it's never too early or too late to learn. 

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library program mails children a free book each month from birth until they are 5 years old. Books are chosen by experts in publishing and education and are based on the child's age. There are no eligibility requirements for Dolly Parton's book club; any child can join.

Parton's mission is to foster a love of learning in children, making the experience of reading fun and meaningful. Imagination Library is now available in over 2,000 communities in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia.1 Since the program's inception in 1995, it has distributed more than 172 million books to young readers.

The free, brand-new books from Dolly Parton's book club are a mixture of classic and contemporary fiction and non–fiction for children. Children get a book appropriate for their age on subjects including nursery rhymes, letters, safety, diversity, and school preparation.

The books from the Dolly Parton Imagination Library strive to showcase diversity, help build self-confidence, and show the importance of the arts and its impact on the world. Audio and braille books are also available. The first title that children receive is always The Little Engine That Could, and the last title is always Kindergarten, Here I Come! What a wonderful program to help educate children around the world.
