Reading is an all-encompassing happiness because it can take you anywhere. I read daily. It brings me joy and peace.
Since I never had kids of my own, I have always felt that all children were mine. There is no other happiness like the happiness children bring you, whether they are yours or not.
Dreaming makes me happy. I wake up with new dreams every day and I am energized by the new creativity they instill in me.

Welcome to Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, Australia by the United Way Australia.
The Imagination Library programme improves early childhood literacy for children by giving them a free, high-quality, age-appropriate book each month from birth to age 5.
“This program is one of the most important ways I know to improve the educational opportunities for children in your community.
When I was growing up in the hills of East Tennessee, I knew my dreams would come true. I know there are children in your community with their own dreams. They dream of becoming a doctor or an inventor or a minister. Who knows, maybe there is a little girl whose dream is to be a writer and singer.
The seeds of these dreams are often found in books and the seeds you help plant in your community can grow across the world.
I hope you’ll agree to become a champion of the Imagination Library in your community. You will be amazed at the impact this simple gift can have on the lives of children and their families. We have seen it work in our backyard and I’m certain it can do the same in your community too!
I appreciate your interest in my Imagination Library and thank you for all you continue to do for children.”
