Dolly Parton Has New Children's Book

Dolly Parton created Imagination Library 13 years ago to provide books to children to encourage literacy. Now the entertainer known to many kids as "The Book Lady" will have her own children's book, "I Am a Rainbow," featured in the international philanthropy.

The 63-year-old Parton says working on children's projects like the book gives her a chance to play and live her second childhood. The book, which Parton says is for children of all ages, describes how colors can be used to explain emotions children might have.

She wrote it with plans for the sale proceeds to benefit Imagination Library, which supplies books to 1,000 communities in 47 states, the United Kingdom and Canada.

Laughing until we had tears. I’ve never seen anything like the look on my kids’ faces when we drove down the Parkway past Pigeon Forge attractions. Our hotel was so vibrant and the staff was upbeat and helpful. Pigeon Forge is the brightest spot in the Smoky Mountains. The high energy (and clean language) shows we saw in theaters had everyone in my family clapping their hands…even “sour” Uncle George.
