Indigenizing Children's Literature
Reese, Debbie
Journal of Language and Literacy Education, v4 n2 p59-72 Fall 2008
In this article the author situates the analysis of two popular children's books in theoretical frameworks emerging from American Indian Studies. Using a new historicist lens, she discusses Anne Rockwell's (1999) "Thanksgiving Day" and Laura Ingalls Wilder's (1935/1971) "Little House on the Prairie" and suggests that these books function as obstacles for the understanding of the Other in American and global society.
