This essay takes issue with earlier critical work arguing early British children's literature functions to construct middle class subjectivites. Using the John Newbery Medal as a case study, this essay examines the prizing of children's literature and its cultural discontents. The author uses a third-person limited omniscient point of view to demonstrate the necessity of perspective and sympathy for moral growth. Children's rights have become a significant field of study during the past decades.
