Dolly Parton’s “Coat of Many Colors” is being turned into a children’s book. Parton says she made the decision because, “Every year I receive dozens of letters and emails from teachers talking about how they use the song in their classroom to discuss being proud of who you are, that being different is not a bad thing, that every person is special and the terrible consequences of being bullied.” She adds, “It has always made me feel honored that my little song has been used in this way.” The book will include a new downloadable song from Parton called “Makin’ Fun Ain’t Funny.” It’ll be available beginning October 18th.
