Third Place Books holding a book drive for kids in detention

Wednesday, October 10, 2018

In difficult times, books are a valuable source of solace and solidarity.

Until October 31, 2018, Third Place Books will collect bilingual Spanish/English and Spanish language books to send to children currently being detained and separated from their parents.

We will give 20% off purchased books to be donated.

We will ship the books to Kids In Need of Defense (KIND), whose mission is to protect unaccompanied children who enter the US immigration system alone to ensure that no child appears in court without an attorney. KIND will then distribute books to children in detention centers across the United States.

Please consider the below titles to donate or come into our Lake Forest Park location (upper level Town Center, intersection Bothell and Ballinger Way) to browse the display in our children's department.


This beacon of a picture book, which illustrates the story of the author's own journey to the United States with her two-month-old son, emphatically asserts that immigrants belong in this country, no matter the political rhetoric that claims the opposite.

Frida Kahlo y Sus Animalitos

Frida Kahlo y sus Animalitos, written by Monica Brown and illustrated by John Parra, is based on the life of one of the world's most influential painters, Frida Kahlo, and the animals that inspired her art and life.

Brown's story recounts Frida's beloved pets — two monkeys, a parrot, three dogs, two turkeys, an eagle, a black cat, and a fawn — and playfully considers how Frida embodied many wonderful characteristics of each animal.
