I have been a member of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library since Ryan was born. What the program does is send a book to your child EVERY month until age four. These are GOOD books too...and always age appropriate. This is an attempt to increase literacy, starting with young children. This program is not available in all cities. It is actually not available where I live, but I used my mom's address instead, and she gives me the books when we see each other.
Go here and find out if this is available in your area! If not, try a relative's address. (If you live in Jackson county...as I know many of my readers do...I know for a fact that its available in your area.)
