Children’s Book Is Inspired By Dolly Parton’s Classic Song
Country music legend Dolly Parton brings her beloved classic to life in Coat of Many Colors, a new picture book.
Using lyrics from her classic song "Coat of Many Colors," and inspired by Parton’s rural upbringing in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, the picture book tells the story of a young girl in need of a warm winter coat. The book also features a downloadable exclusive original song by Dolly, “Making Fun Ain’t Funny."
Francesco Sedita, President of Grosset & Dunlap, the book's publisher, says,
“As someone who grew up listening to Dolly Parton with my family, having this very special opportunity to work on the Coat of Many Colors picture book has been a lifelong dream come true. The book—and the song, of course—really speaks to how important family and community is. And how vital it is to respect those around us and to be grateful for what we have. I believe this book is one that will be passed down for generations to come.”
