Some Thoughts on Judging Children's Literature.
Mingle, Pamela T.
Top of the News, v40 n4 p423-26 Sum 1984
Suggesting that "criticism" of children's literature has become didactic and censorious, this essay focuses on treatment of women and minority groups in children's books; traditional standards of literary criticism; concerns in literature (racism, sexism, ageism, portrayal of handicapped); and how authors create books. Examples of children's books are mentioned. (17 references) (EJS)
