Language and Culture Monsters That Lurk in Our Traditional Rhymes and Folktales.
Cornell, Charles E.
Young Children, v48 n6 p40-46 Sep 1993
Traditional rhymes and folktales can offer understanding of our customs and culture but also contain elements that can raise obstacles to the academic and social development of young children, especially those from other cultures. Consider the following when evaluating traditional literature: meaningful language, unintentional promotion of prejudice or stereotypes, and elements inducing fear or anxiety. (TJQ)
