(WTXL) — While experiencing tough times we all may need a soothing voice to help us get some sleep at night.

During this time of social distancing, Dolly Parton is taking the time to spread some virtual love to make sure we all can get a good night's rest.

Starting Thursday, Dolly Parton will be reading bedtime stories to everyone in a new YouTube series.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is presenting a new weekly read-aloud video series called “Goodnight with Dolly.”

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."

“This is something I have been wanting to do for quite a while, but the timing never felt quite right. I think it is pretty clear that now is the time to share a story and to share some love," said Parton. "It is an honor for me to share the incredible talent of these authors and illustrators. They make us smile, they make us laugh and they make us think.”

"Goodnight with Dolly" will air once a week beginning on April 2, for 10 weeks at 7:00 PM EST.
