A Demand for Excellence in Books for Children.
LaBonty, Jan
Journal of American Indian Education, v34 n2 p1-9 Win 1995
Children's books selected for schools and libraries are judged by criteria of literary and artistic excellence, and books featuring minority-group characters must be held to additional criteria. Such scrupulous selectivity is not censorship. "The Indian in the Cupboard" trilogy (Lynn Reid Banks) is criticized for its historical and linguistic inaccuracies and negative stereotypes of Iroquoian characters. (Author/SV)
