I love this book for two reasons, the way that the facts about Dolly's life are presented and the illustrations that are throughout the book. One fact that I found to be presented in a very interesting way was how Dolly got herself on the radio and eventually on T.v., this part of the story depicts Dolly as a smart women who is creative and can do anything she puts her mind to. The part where she figured out that if she got all wet and then rolled in sand that she would be able to climb the 50 foot greased up pole to get the 50 dollar bill was both funny and empowering. The illustrations in the book are very simple, however they add character to the story. The illustrations look like pencil sketches are directly related to the content on the page and they are also pictures of Dolly herself too. The big idea behind this book is to tell about Dolly Parton and her life story in a way that is easy to read and understand. ( )

I finished this children's biography with the sense that Dolly Parton is one of the kindest, most optimistic, and hardest working people in show business. And that's all probably true, too! Also pretty impressed that my son who never listens to country music chose to read this book, but Dolly is also responsible for The Pirates Voyage (among many other things). ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0448478927, Paperback)

Born in a little cabin in Tennessee, Dolly Parton always dreamed big, and she was right to! She wrote her first song at age five and became a country music star by the time she was in her early twenties. Of course, her success didn't stop there. Dolly Parton is also an actress, author, businesswoman, and philanthropist whose "Imagination Library" reading initiative reaches children throughout the US, Canada, and the UK. There is simply no one like Dolly Parton!
