The New York Public Library's Teen Reading Ambassadors program brings together 10th–12th grade students from across New York City to learn about the Library and help further its mission to inspire lifelong learning in others, particularly young children. Below are book recommendations for kids ages 6–12 selected by some of our Teen Ambassadors for Women’s History Month. These titles are written and illustrated (primarily) by women, but they also highlight important current issues of gender, race, ethnicity, identity, and justice (and their intersections) that are relevant to all people (children included!) today.
