The Portrayal of Older People in Award-Winning Literature for Children.
Dellmann-Jenkins, Mary; Yang, Lisa
Journal of Research in Childhood Education, v12 n1 p96-100 Fall-Win 1997
Examined illustrations for portrayal of older adult characters in Caldecott Medal-winning picture books, comparing 1972-83 and 1984-95 winners. Found that recent books portray elderly in a more positive manner than earlier winners. In addition, only two significant gender differences in a field of 36 possibilities were found over the entire 23-year period of Caldecott award-winners. (HTH)
