Parton’s Sprout House appearance is only the latest in her quest to help encourage young minds. Speaking with PEOPLE in October, the 71-year-old explained the themes behind her album.

“We talk about responsibility, we talk about bullying,” she said. “We talk about giving, we talk about friendship, loyalty and all those wonderful little things, and we do it in a fun way.”
