Dolly Parton created a charity 13 years ago to provide books to children and encourage literacy.
Now her first children’s book, “I Am a Rainbow,” will be featured in the philanthropy.
The 63-year-old Parton said working on projects for children gives her a chance to play and live a second childhood. The book she wrote describes how colors can be used to explain emotions children have.
Proceeds from the sale of Parton’s book will benefit her Imagination Library charity.
