Gray Power: An Endangered Species? Ageism as Portrayed in Children's Books
Storey, Denise C.
Social Education, 41, 6, 528-33, Oct 77
Assesses the effects on children's attitudes of books which portray the elderly. Findings indicate that the stereotypic and negative images of the elderly which predominate in children's literature tend to misinform and prejudice young readers about the role of the elderly in our society. An annotated bibliography of 66 children's books is included. (Author/DB)
