  1. Dolly Parton Will Read Bedtime Stories

    Starting tomorrow, the country music legend will take to YouTube once a week to read a children's book from her Imagination Library donation program. Good Night Dolly is designed to be "a welcome distraction during a time of unrest," and will take place over a 10-week period. She'll kick off the readings with the Watty Piper classic The Little Engine That Could.

    Why children's books? Parton, who's penned two picture books herself, has a long history with children's literacy efforts, and her nonprofit has given away 130 million books to kids since it launched in 1995.
