Young Children's Interpretations of Gender from Visual Text and Narrative.
Smith, Ruth S.
Linguistics and Education, v7 n4 p303-25 1995
Describes a text and some children's readings of a fictional animal story in which a bossy rooster is "tamed" by a female sheep dog. The article's analysis of the children's discussions of the story focuses on modality to trace their acceptance of "credibility" in the text with respect to the construction of gender and the story's resolution.
