Over the last 4.5years my eldest son has received some fantastic books from the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. This has not only enhanced his love of books and stories but has encouraged him to begin to learn to read before starting school.

As a parent, I think it is a great shame that such a wonderful scheme that has enabled many children to access literature, is set to close in September.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library of United Kingdom is a free book gifting organisation devoted to inspiring a love of reading in the hearts of children everywhere. Each month, enrolled children receive a high quality, age appropriate book in the post, free of charge. Children receive books from birth to age five.

This means my other children will never know the joy of these free monthly books, or get to share the joy of reading future wonderful stories with parents and grandparents alike.

This will mean families across Doncaster will not have future access to books that land on their door step every month. 

With falling literacy and reading rates nationally, schemes like this one are essential to ensure the love of reading and skills for life are nourished by our children.

Please sign and share this petition.
