Growing Up and Growing Older: Books for Young Readers. An Annotated Bibliography of Nonageist Literature for Preschool-Primary.
McGuire, Sandra L.
Early children's literature plays a major role in the development of attitudes. This annotated bibliography is a compilation of early children's literature that contains positive portrayals of elders. Selected for the bibliography were books that portray aging as a natural and lifelong process of growing and developing, present similarities between young and old, show young and old enjoying each other and learning from each other, and view older adults as valuable and contributing members of society. The annotated bibliography contains 95 current titles. It also pinpoints 14 favorite books and lists 9 now out-of-print favorites. Includes a literature analysis form for promoting positive attitudes about aging with young children. (NKA)
