Imagination Library Book Selections AU

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library puts books into the hands and hearts of children around the world. Imagination Library books are specially selected age-appropriate, high-quality titles. These books are delivered to registered children each month from birth to age five. Each one is personalized with the child’s name and mailed directly to the child’s home. This effort creates a gifting experience making books exciting and shows the child someone is thinking of them. Additionally, the Book Selection Committee will choose titles with content representative of Australia readers featuring beloved characters and iconic authors. The majority of the Australia books are published by Penguin Random House Australia.

The first book a child receives isRoo Knows Blue.” The month a child turns five years old, they will receive Stuff To Know When You Start School.”
