Images of Chinese and Chinese Americans Mirrored in Picture Books.
Cai, Mingshui
Children's Literature in Education, v25 n3 p169-91 Sep 1994
Examines how 73 picture storybooks portrayed Chinese and Chinese Americans and how the books reflect the Chinese culture. Finds that most present positive images of Chinese and Chinese Americans, that cultural inauthenticity is the main flaw of many books, and that more picture books are needed that feature flesh and blood contemporary Chinese and Chinese Americans.
