The New York Public Library's Teen Reading Ambassadors internship program brings together 10th–12th grade students to help further the Library's mission to inspire lifelong learning in others, particularly young children. Ambassadors work at NYPL After School programs across the city providing tutoring and literacy enrichment activities to children ages 6–12. They also show children the joy of reading by connecting them with engaging books from the Library’s collections! 

Love to laugh? The Teen Reading Ambassadors have compiled books for kids that are filled with humor and joy, featuring a confused mole, a curious cat, and even an excitable potato! We hope you will enjoy this laugh-out-loud collection as much as we do.
