Non-Ageist Picture Books for Young Readers: An Annotated Bibliography for Preschool-Primary Level.
McGuire, Sandra L.
Noting that early children's literature plays a major role in the development of children's attitudes, this annotated bibliography lists over 100 early childhood picture books which contain positive portrayals of older adults. The books selected portray aging as a natural and lifelong process of growing and developing; present similarities between old and young, as well as show young and old enjoying each other and learning from each other; and view older people as valuable and contributing members of society. Each annotation provides a brief summary of the story and the aging concept illustrated, and indicates grade level, publisher, and cost. The list does not include books that deal extensively with illness, disability, and death, since such topics are not necessarily synonymous with aging. (SR)
