Dolly Parton's New Children's Album Will Benefit Her Non-Profit: 'People Relate to Me' Being Like 'Mother Goose'

Dolly Parton is lending her voice—and her self-described fairy-tale face—to a worthy cause.

The well-known singer and actress will soon release I Believe In You, her debut children's record, 

the proceeds of which will support her nonprofit Dolly Parton's Imagination Library.

Prior to the album's release, Parton, 71, tells PEOPLE, "That fact that I love kids and people relate to me looking like a Mother Goose or Cinderella —

you know, one of those over-exaggerated cartoon characters — it gets children's attention, and it keeps me young."

She continues, describing the themes of the album as "we talk about bullying, we talk about responsibility."

 We discuss generosity, kindness, loyalty, and all those lovely little things in a lighthearted manner. 

The songs are really sing-along-worthy and joyful. It is hoped that this would be well received by the public, especially by children.
