INTERPERSONAL RELATIONS IN CHILDREN'S LITERATURE, 1920-1960.
HOMZE, ALMA
THE BEHAVIORAL PATTERNS, BACKGROUNDS, AND THEMES OF CHILDREN'S REALISTIC TRADE BOOKS WERE IDENTIFIED. NINE CATEGORIES OF INTERPERSONAL BEHAVIOR WERE DEVELOPED AND DEFINED IN THIS INVESTIGATION OF CHANGES IN CONTENT OF CHILDREN'S BOOKS PUBLISHED WITHIN A PERIOD OF 40 YEARS, FROM 1920-60. FROM 780 SAMPLES REVIEWED BY THE EXAMINER, THREE JUDGES SELECTED 78 BOOKS PORTRAYING CHARACTERS EXHIBITING BELIEVABLE BEHAVIOR. THE BOOK ANALYSIS WAS BASED UPON SAMPLES OF THE VERBAL REACTION BETWEEN TWO OR MORE CHARACTERS WITHIN EACH OF 10 SECTIONS FOR EACH BOOK. TOTALS FOR EACH ITEM WERE COMPUTED FOR EACH YEAR AND THE AVERAGE PERCENTAGES FOR THE 1920-40 AND 1945-60 PERIODS WERE CALCULATED. THE RELIABILITY OF THE SYSTEM OF ANALYSIS WAS EXAMINED BY TWO JUDGES. CHANGING RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE CHILD-ADULT, THE CHILD-CHILD BEHAVIORAL PATTERNS, URBAN-RURAL BACKGROUND, AND IN THE RELATION OF THE INDIVIDUAL TO THE FAMILY, THE PEER GROUP, AND TO SOCIETY WERE NOTED IN THE RESEARCH. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "ELEMENTARY ENGLISH," VOLUME 43, NUMBER 52, JANUARY 1966. (MC)
