Ageism: Its Portrayal in Children's Books: An Annotated Bibliography.
Crook, Patricia R.; Belcher, Ollie
The children's books listed in this annotated bibliography contain older characters who are significant to the story, making the listing a useful resource for teachers and others interested in helping children become more sensitive to the ways in which older people are treated. The individual listings contain information on the author, title, publisher, age level (preschool, primary, intermediate), genre (fiction, biography), plot, and dominant image of the story (how the aged are portrayed). The citations are listed under the following topics: cross cultural, death of a grandparent, fantasy-oriented, grandchild visiting grandparents, grandparents faced with changes while they are caring for children, living alone, living alone and becoming ill, grandparents living with or visiting grandchildren, grandparents who have primary care of young children, the nursing home, photographic essays, senility, and relationships between children and older people outside the family.
