For decades, Dolly Parton has been in the spotlight, entertaining American adults with her beautiful gift of song.
But behind the scenes, Ms. Parton has been making life much better for a whole generation of children.
And now Dolly Parton has just hit a major milestone in this program that is changing the lives of millions of kids.
Coat of Many Colors
Dolly Parton has done it all.
The Queen of Country is one of the most successful recording artists alive today, and she’s also been the star of several hit movies.
She also has her own theme park in Tennessee and an event center in Missouri.
Dolly has done it all while staying true to her Christian roots and without bending the knee to the self-proclaimed “social justice warriors.”
But while Parton has stayed apolitical throughout her long and storied career – that doesn’t mean she isn’t giving back to the community.
The Dollywood Foundation’s Dolly Parton Imagination Library is helping kids from every walk of life learn one of the most essential skills: reading.
According to the National Assessment of Adult Literacy (NAAL), 21% of Americans are illiterate, and that statistic gets far worse in major metropolitan areas.
The NAAL also found that two-thirds of kids who can’t read proficiently by fourth grade will end up in jail or on welfare.
And while government-run schools are failing these children – Parton and her foundation just hit a significant milestone of success filling in where the government fails.
Here You Come Again
The Dolly Parton Imagination Library is an interesting charity that provides a monthly book to children from birth to age five.
That way, by the time the child is ready to start school, he or she already has an impressive library of 60 classic and age-appropriate works of literature.
The kids aren’t being sent woke titles like, Gender Queer.
Instead, they get stories with strong morals like The Little Engine That Could and classic children’s authors like Roald Rahl.
Last month, the Smokey Mountain Songbird’s organization sent out about 2.5-Million free books to kids all over the country.
That brings the total since the inception of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library program just shy of an astonishing 225 million books sent.
And the project isn’t slowing down.
In just the past month, Parton announced the Imagination Library has expanded to include more counties in Missouri, Illinois, and Maine.
Tomorrow is Forever
While government-run schools are busy indoctrinating kids with woke propaganda and stoking their library shelves with Critical Race Theory and Queer Theory children’s books, students are falling behind.
For that reason, homeschooling is soaring in the United States.
Reason Magazine reported homeschooling has increased by 51% since the 2017-2018 school year.
And Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a great resource for parents considering educating their children from their own homes.
