Podcast Ep 10: BookPeople Modern First Library

BookPeople, the leading independent bookstore in Texas since 1970, is proud to announce the BookPeople Modern First Library initiative. This initiative is all about pairing beloved picture books that will never go out of style along with other favorites that reflect the diverse, global society of the 21st century.

Author Phil Bildner interviewed award-winning author Chris Barton and BookPeople’s head buyer, Meghan Goel about the Modern First Library — learn how you can start one of your own!

This initiative loves and supports the classics such as Goodnight Moon, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and Harold and the Purple Crayon but understands that there is “a whole canon of new books out there that also deserve a place on kids’ shelves”.

These stories broaden kids’ horizons, provide fresh perspectives, and open windows to new experiences: all the things that great children’s books should do.

Modern-First-Library

Modern First Library’s volunteers and team members have collected recommendations from the incredible authors who are the initiative’s guest bloggers. They’ve also added a small selection of titles that they think would make great additions to any parent, teacher, librarian or child’s library. If you go into the store you’ll see some of their featured collections, with your own favorites that will put together the perfect starter kit that speaks to the reader.

Phil wrote Marvelous Cornelius which was a featured Read out Loud with illustrator John Parra!
