Books for Today's Children: An Annotated Bibliography of Non-Stereotyped Picture Books.
Bracken, Jeanne, Comp.; Wigutoff, Sharon, Comp.
Growing from a study of commercially produced books published since 1972 that appeared to be nonsexist or role free, this publication contains critical annotations of 193 picture books. The selections include stories of nonwhite cultures, single-parent homes, and women in nontraditional work roles and deal with diverse experiences such as adoption, disability, and death. Of the entries, 143 are recommended (free of sexism) 28 are recommended with some reservations, and 22 are not recommended because of sexist attitudes. Author and subject indexes are appended (FL)
