Have you heard about Dolly Parton's Imagination Library initiative? It was recently brought to my attention through another blog and I just love the idea. When you register your child through Imagination Initiative, he or she will receive a free book each month until they are the age of three. So cool, right? The program sends high quality books to children in hopes to foster a love for reading.
The program began in 1996 Dolly's home of East Tennessee but is now available in three different countries; the United States, Canada, and the UK. In the US, the program isn't available in all areas or even in all states, but you can volunteer your time to help start up a program. I'm definitely thinking about volunteering and making it happen in my area.
If you decide to volunteer or sign your kiddos up, let me know!
