In addition to winning numerous Country Music Awards and Grammys, and starring in hit films like "9 to 5" and "Steel Magnolias," Dolly Parton is also a literacy advocate who has herself written many books. Dolly said she founded the Imagination Library, a charity that provides books to children and encourages literacy, because she realized just how crippling illiteracy was. "If you can read you can educate yourself. If you can't go to school or don't want to, you can still go buy a book about any subject you want and educate yourself," she explained. From her newest release, Dream More: Celebrate the Dreamer In You, to her first book, a Tennessee cookbook, learn about all of Dolly Parton's works.







The legendary Dolly Parton shares for the first time her deeply held philosophy of life and her heartfelt hopes for everyone. Based on the hugely popular commencement speech Dolly Parton gave at the University of Tennessee that became a sensation, Dream More is a deeper and richer exploration of the personal philosophy she has forged over the course of her astonishing career as a singer, songwriter, performer, and philanthropist. Using her speech as a jumping-off point, Parton explores the four great hopes she urges us to embrace: dream more, learn more, care more, and be more. She culls examples of these values from her own life as illustrations, from growing up poor in the hills of eastern Tennessee to her experiences as the iconic performer she has become today. Written by one of the cultural legends of our time, Dream More is a poignant and uplifting anthem for all who want to take charge of their lives and forge a future on their own terms.

They are collected in chapters focused on how Dolly cooks: special dishes for holiday celebrations; fun, easy recipes for cooking with kids; and one-dish supers for a crowd. Along the way she chats about her childhood, the early years on the Nashville music scene with Porter Wagoner, and life on the road as a celebrity singer, songwriter, and actress.

Coat of Many Colors by Dolly Parton





Winter is coming to Tennessee and there's no money to buy a new coat, so a little girl's mama sew one for her out of rags. The little girl wears it to school proudly, and when the other children laugh, she gives them a quick lesson about what it means to be rich. Judith Sutton's beautiful paintings bring one of Dolly Parton's best-loved songs to life. "The heartfelt verses are imbued with the same genuine, infectiously likable spirit Parton herself projects." Publishers Weekly.
