From the Editor…

If you haven’t signed up your little one for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, you need to! This amazing program is designed to bring literacy to children by gifting books to kids birth to age 5, no matter their family’s income. The books are high quality and diverse and will build a child’s very own library before they enter school. And what child doesn’t love getting their very own mail every month?

This program even goes a step further, making sure it is accessible for children who are blind or visually impaired. An ever expanding collection of titles will be available as free downloadable children’s audio books and for those who prefer, there will be many titles available in braille from APH. These will be offered free-of- charge to eligible families and may be purchased at a low cost by all others. Washington State is one of the program supporters. To sign up click here.
