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 children on a journey of the imagination. The Interabang Modern First Library combines familiar classics with new favorites that reflect today’s diverse, global, modern world. New books will be added throughout the year as well as themed bundles of books. You can create your own unique bundle or buy each book individually.
