Holler Loudly by Cynthia Leitich Smith, illustrated by Barry Gott is a Dolly Parton's Imagination Library Selection

I'm honored to report that my 2010 picture book, Holler Loudly, illustrated by Barry Gott (Dutton) has been selected for inclusion in Dolly Parton's Imagination Library.

This literacy program serves children from birth through pre-school.

Pictured (right) is the letter I received informing me of the news, just for fun shown along with one of my favorite Dolly CDs.

See Dolly Parton's Imagination Library on facebook and find out how you can help.

See also a Pre-K teacher guide for Holler Loudly, created by Shannon Morgan (guides for kindergarten, grade 1 and grade 2 are likewise available (PDFs).
