Imagination Library Gold Medal Selections Republic of Ireland

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 readers living in the Republic of Ireland, featuring beloved characters and iconic authors. All of the following books are published by Penguin Random House.

The first book a child receives is “TiN”. The month a child turns five years old, they will receive “The Selfish Giant”.
