Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

Hearing a story read aloud is always a comforting feeling, and you'd be hard-pressed to find a narrator with a more mellifluous or charming voice than beloved country musician Dolly Parton. The woman is a national treasure, and her Goodnight with Dolly series has those famously sing-song tones in full effect -- yet wisely puts each book's colorful artwork front and center for sleepy kiddos to appreciate. After the book wraps up, Dolly talks a little about the meaning behind the story and how these themes are reflected in our daily lives. Her loving granny vibes and the positive messages conveyed in the stories makes this a great bet for families looking for something different to add to their bedtime routines.
