During these trying times, we might need a soothing voice to help us get to sleep.

Dolly Parton is making that happen.

"Hello, I'm Dolly Parton, the book lady from the Imagination Library. I want you to join me April 2 when I start 'Goodnight with Dolly.' I'm going to be reading some stories from the Imagination Library."

That's right. Starting Thursday, Dolly Parton will be reading bedtime stories to us in a new YouTube series.

The program is scheduled to run for 10 weeks and will feature stories including "The Little Engine That Could," "Llama Llama Red Pajama" and Parton's own "Coat of Many Colors."

Parton has always had a passion for reading. In 1995, she created the gift-giving program, Imagination Library, which mails free books to children around the world.
