Modern First Library

Classic children’s books speak to us in a timeless voice, with stories that are a child’s first window to the world outside their home and family. These classics open doors to new experiences, broaden horizons, teach lessons and take us on a journey of the imagination. We at Interabang Books feel that building a child’s first library is key to raising young people with a love of books and an open and receptive mind. With that goal in mind, we are thrilled to introduce Interabang Books’ Modern First Library. The inspiration for this initiative came from children’s author  Chris Barton (http://www.chrisbarton.info), and we join Book People in Austin (http://www.bookpeople.com) and many other children’s authors in embracing and implementing his hope to provide a way to build a thoughtful and imaginative first library for a child in your life.

The Interabang Modern First Library will combine some of our old familiar and favorite classics with some of our favorite new books that we feel reflect the diverse, global, modern world that we live in.   We will induct new books throughout the year, and offer themed bundles of books or the opportunity to create your own unique bundle, or you may buy each book individually.
