You’d better believe that Dolly Parton has released a baker’s dozen animated videos for the songs on I Believe in You, her first album written for kids.
“I’m so excited to share this series of animated lyric videos for my children’s album,” she tweeted. “Each song has its own video that tells a story and hopefully encourages kids big & small to read and sing-along!”

The country music icon also announced via Twitter that every 2018 child season pass purchased for her theme park Dollywood will include a copy of I Believe In You.
Parton wrote and sang all the tracks on the album, which includes a new recording of her classic “Coat of Many Colors.” The song, which is about Parton’s own childhood, has inspired a children’s book and two TV movies.
Other highlights include “I Am a Rainbow,” a ditty about racial diversity. “Rainbow boys and rainbow girls,” she sings. “So love a lot and color the world.”
“Bullies never ever get respect from anyone,” the vocal LGBT ally sings in “Makin’ Fun Ain’t Funny,” a song about the importance of respecting others. “Let’s celebrate our differences instead of making fun.”
All proceeds from album sales will benefit Parton’s charity, the Imagination Library, which delivers free books to children.
Parton’s last studio album, 2016’s Pure & Simple, was inspired by love and her 50-year marriage to Carl Dean.
