A new School Matters series on “CBS This Morning” will feature Dolly Parton on Monday, Aug. 17.
The founder of the Imagination Library, Dolly Parton will be a featured guest on “CBS This Morning” on Aug. 17, during the 8 AM (EST) hour as part of the show’s new School Matters series.
Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library gifts a free, high-quality book to registered children each month. Every year, a specially selected panel of early childhood literacy experts reviews hundreds of potential titles for inclusion in the Imagination Library. This panel takes great care in choosing books that meet the different needs of children as they progress from birth to age five. To date, the Imagination Library has gifted over 140 million free books to children around the world. Recent studies suggest participation in the Imagination Library is positively and significantly associated with higher measures of early language and math development.
