FALL IS IN THE AIR AND GREAT NEW BOOKS ARE ARRIVING EVERY DAY

This week marks the arrival of so many wonderful new children’s books and that trend will be continuing over the coming weeks. Here are just a few of my new favorites.

Antiracism for Kids

Our conscientiousness has been once more awakened to the reality of racism and inequality in our country. This past week has been one of much personal and public reflection and the emotions stirred by that process of anger, sadness and helplessness. I think often about how children feel about what they are seeing and hearing right now and how difficult it is for parents, teachers and other adults to talk to our children about racism and the active opposition to it that is antiracism. One of the things that gives me hope are the words of Nelson Mandela, 

Connection

As life has slowed in many ways in these past weeks -- despite our having much to contemplate and occupy our minds -- I find it more crucial than ever to use paths of human connection to still our minds and lift our spirits. One of the best ways to do that is through reading. Books connect us to people, places and worlds beyond our own, take us on journeys of the imagination, and give us opportunities to grow even while being still. 

Women's History Month

What a treasure trove of children’s books we have that tell the stories of amazing, strong, brave and influential women! March is women’s history month so be sure to come in to Interabang Books to find tales to inspire the young people in your life of women such as these. There are stories about artists, scientists, aviators, journalists, judges, dancers, thinkers and dreamers. Many of their stories you may have never heard about before. Here are just a few of our favorites but there will be many on display at the store.    
 

Modern First Library - New Inductees

We created the Interabang Modern First Library when we first opened our doors, and it continues to be one of the 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 new and old that we feel will build a child’s library that they will love and treasure for years to come. 

Fall Into Books

Though hot Texas days have not yet released their hold, fall is in the air at Interabang Books. Fall is my favorite season and a wonderful time to find some beautiful books that highlight this time of year. From a lovely picture book about a scarecrow and a crow becoming friends, an island taken over by pumpkins, or the wonder of falling leaves, we feature a wonderful, ever changing selection of fall titles. Here are just a few.

Who Am I? A Primer to Biographies for Kids

Who are the heroes who shaped the world? From Marie Curie to Nelson Mandela, people from all over have made global society what it is. Inventors, authors, activists, athletes and others show us that anyone has the ability to accomplish great things. It is never too early for the young to learn about extraordinary people and be inspired to undertake wonderful works of their own. Here are some of our favorite children’s books and biographies.
 

T-50 Years of Apollo 11

A year-long celebration has begun marking the approach of the 50 year anniversary of Apollo 11’s landing on the moon, and the famous words that Neil Armstrong uttered, “That’s one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind.” As the entire country sat riveted to their televisions, watching the grainy footage from the surface of the moon, America seemed invincible. A plaque was planted on the lunar surface that reads, “Here Men From Planet Earth First Set Foot Upon The Moon July 1969, A.D. We Came in Peace For All Mankind.”

Book Series to Start This Summer

School is out, the weather is hot, and Interabang Books is beckoning. What better time than summer to immerse yourself in reading a good series? The lazy, hazy days of summer allow the time and lack of distraction to get to know the places, characters and continuing sagas of a great children’s series. The feeling of disappointment in finishing a good book vanishes when one knows that another volume awaits, with the familiar characters ready to transport you along on another adventure.

Summer Camp Reads

Whatever you bring to summer camp, it’s important to have fun and share – read aloud to your friends, plan to bring the same book as a best friend, or plan to trade books while you’re at camp! Happy reading and happy camping, kids.
