Facets Non-Violent, Non-Sexist Children's Video Guide.
Boyle, Virginia A., Comp.
Helping parents, teachers, and librarians choose the best non-violent, non-sexist videos for children, this book presents brief descriptions of more than 800 videos (for children up to 12 years old) that were selected (out of more than 2500 screened) for their life-affirming content, cultural diversity, and lack of violence and sexism. Each film in the book is indexed by recommended age level and by subject matter, as well as by title. Films and videos in the book include animation, fairy tales, feature films, music videos, mysteries, comedies, biographies, birthday videos, and activity tapes. Many films are award-winners. Boys and girls are depicted in positive ways, and in many of the videos, girls play central roles. In addition, films in the book are noteworthy for presenting peaceful alternatives to the resolution of conflicts. Dozens of the videos in the book are especially suited for toddlers. (RS)
