My daughter is an avid reader. Has been since she was a toddler! So you can imagine her delight when she found the offer for free books in her “welcome home” package from the hospital after she had her first baby!
What a great idea! A book a month for your child, from birth to five years old!
So she signed him up, and was quite delighted to receive a beautiful children’s book in the mail the very, next month!
Each month she receives a good quality book. No gimmicks, no tricks, just great age appropriate books! Most of them are hardback, some soft cover. All of them are very colorful, and intriguing!
The program is called “The Imagination Library“. The result of a dream and a vision that Dolly Parton had to provide free, high quality books to the preschool aged children in her county. It was her hope to instill the love of reading at a very early age.
The dream has grown since its inception in 1996, and today, free books are sent to nearly 700,000 young children each month, all over the world.
I think you’ll find like I did, it’s so encouraging to know that there are good people in this world who just like to do good things for other people.
