Hi Everyone! We all LOVE to read and everyone values the programs that help children read. I run the Imagination Library program in St. Clair County MI (provides free books to children 0-5). We fund the program with grants and we are up for a $25,000 grant from State Farm. We need your help - please vote for St. Clair County's Literacy Initiative

PROOF POINTS: The literacy secret that Dolly Parton knows: Free books work.

Providing free books + caregiver engagement is an effective way to build early literacy skills! Literacy experts have long known that reading to toddlers, even babies, can make a big difference in children’s reading abilities later in elementary school. But does simply giving away free books to low-income families with young children help with early reading? An analysis of 44 studies of book giveaway programs concludes that free stuff does work.

Dan Santat on The Little Engine That Could | Brightly

The Little Engine That Could is the very first book that any child who signs up for Dolly Parton's Imagination Library receives. And that’s no accident. The story’s message of perseverance is truly timeless, and its core message – “I think I can” – speaks volumes to kids. The book has personal significance to Parton as well. “On many occasions, when my dream seemed far away, my Mama would tell me the story of the Little Engine to comfort and encourage me,” she’s said.

Here’s how illustrator Dan Santat changed his own mantra from “I can not” to “I think I can,” just like the Little Blue Engine in the book. #DollysLibrary #ImaginationLibrary #ArkansasImaginationLibrary #IThinkICan

readbrightly.com Brightly caught up with Dan Santat, illustrator of the 90th anniversary edition of The Little Engine That Could, about what the Little Blue Engine's mantra of "I think I can" means right now.

What is the Imagination Library?

IMAGINE...FREE books every month for the children of Saline County! It sounds almost too good to be true, but by reading regularly with children during their preschool years, they receive the biggest boost toward a successful education they will ever get.
