BBC tells Dolly Parton's Rotherham Dream

The singer said it was her "dream" to help children read.

Country star Dolly Parton will jet into South Yorkshire to launch a scheme she devised to improve children's literacy.
The American singing legend set up the Imagination Library in her native East Tennessee to encourage youngsters to read more.
Council chiefs in Rotherham have taken a leaf out of the singer's book and are introducing the method locally.
Parton will launch the first UK Imagination Library at the town's Magna centre on 5 December.
