New Inductees to the Modern First Library

Modern First Library is our collection of new and old classics for building a child’s first library. We have selected books that have a timeless appeal, inspire creativity and open young minds to the world around us.

We have several new books that we are inducting into the Modern First Library. Each book offers another opportunity to enrich a child’s world through the wonder of the written word and imaginative illustration. Here are some of our new Modern First Library inductees.

Author Spotlight: Beverly Cleary and Louis Darling

No teacher has ever had to assign Beverly Cleary books; children sample a few sentences and they just know.

They have been selling swiftly at Interabang and are currently featured in the kids’ display “New Year / Old Favorites."

Books You Can Chew On

The first book you met was probably a board book. It may have been GOODNIGHT MOON or PAT THE BUNNY. We love these books for their childhood nostalgia.
