Imagination Library

Just in case there is a reader out there who could be getting free books for his/her child, but doesn't know it, I want to mention Dolly Parton's Imagination Library. This is a program started by Dolly Parton to provide one free book every month to every child under the age of five. It started in her home county, Sevier County, and has spread out from there to include communities all over the U.S., as well as in Canada and the U.K. I don't know how many communities are included in the program, but it certainly can't hurt to go check if yours is! The books are really nice, and who doesn't appreciate free books for their kids? So if you aren't already involved, go check out the website: Dolly Parton's Imagination Library.

I know we've talked about this before, but do all four of your get copies? My friend and I were talking about her twin boys and she sends some of the duplicates to her friends who live out of state (or out of the country).

Yes, we get four copies of the same book every month. It feels a little selfish, but it sure is nice that they each get one and don't have to fight over them! And of course, once the new wears off, I pass the extra copies along to friends and family who DON'T get free books, or donate them to daycares and other places where they are appreciated.

This is the best program! We love getting our books every month! I thought they stopped at age 4, but I guess they do keep going until 5 (we just got another book and girls have already turned 4).

We get 2 of the same book every month! HA!
