We created the Interabang Modern First Library when we first opened our doors, and it continues to be one of the most important elements of our wonderful children’s department. The Modern First Library is our curated collection of young children’s books that we feel open the doors to new experiences, broaden horizons, teach lessons and take us on a journey of the imagination. They are timeless classics, both old and new that we feel build a child’s library that they will love and treasure for years to come. 

2021 was a great year for children’s books and as a result, we are bringing several new children’s books into this wonderful collection. These new titles are special books that will take their place among the other beautiful titles of The Modern First Library and hopefully make their way into your library as well.

Published: Norton Young Readers - January 7th, 2020

Often, the simplest things are the most beautiful- like this tale of an old farm truck. Written and illustrated by a team of Texas brothers, it brims with heart and is about so much more than the old truck. The beautiful illustrations were created by combining the images of over 250 rubber stamps and depict the farm and Texas landscape in muted tones and simple shapes that capture the essence of the story so perfectly as it explores the continuity of life and what we hold dear.
