    Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen created the non-partisan, non-profit Governor’s Books from Birth Foundation (GBBF) to serve as a resource to Tennesseans establishing & sustaining countywide Imagination Libraries. The Foundation serves Imagination Library organizers with fundraising, public relations, & other support. Created by Dolly Parton, the Imagination Library provides a new, age-appropriate, hardcover book every month to registered children from birth to age five, at no cost to the family, regardless of income. All of Tennessee’s 375,000 children under age 5 have access to a library of 60 free books. The cost of the program is $27 per child, per year. In Tennessee, the cost is split evenly between county sponsoring organizations and GBBF. A blue ribbon committee of childhood education experts selects the books for the Library, including beloved classics: The Little Engine That Could, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten.
