Who doesn't love Dolly Parton?  Did you know she is not only one of the best American singer/songwriters, but also a huge advocate for early literacy?  Dr. Matthew Present, a 3rd year pediatrics resident at the University of Rochester Medical Center, has established a branch of her wildly successful Dolly Parton Imagination Libraries right here in Rochester.  Listen in as Sarah talks with him about how getting free books to kids can help improve reading skills and benefit the whole family.
