"My first album was released 50 years ago and it's been an amazing 50 years since then," Parton said. "I am very excited that now I'm coming out with my first children's album in all of those 50 years. I'm proudest of all that all of the proceeds from this CD will go to the Imagination Library. It's been 20 years since the Imagination Library was launched. We've seen 100 million books get into the hands of children and hopefully, there will be many more."

Since its start in 1996 in Sevierville, Tennessee, the Imagination Library has expanded into four countries and serves more than one-million children by providing a brand new, age-appropriate book each month.

The track listing is as followed: 
I Believe in You
Coat of Many Colors (new recording)

I'm Here
A Friend Like You
