First, Dolly Parton is a literacy advocate like I am (1) and she loves my book--BUGS AND US (2) like...well, I do, or I wouldn't have written it. In fact, Ms. Parton loves it so much that she has chosen it for her literacy program DOLLY PARTON IMAGINATION LIBRARY. (See letter) Her program gives books to children around the world!
Needless to say, I am thrilled beyond belief. And, right now, I am sticking out my chest with a wee bit of pride. (Humility is more my game!) Only, if Ms. Parton and I had that thing in common, well, you could tell.
