One City, Two Worlds, and Yet...: New York from "Roller Skates" to "Stevie."
Hendrickson, Linnea
Children's Literature in Education, v29 n1 p43-50 Mar 1998
Explores Ruth Sawyer's "Roller Skates" and John Steptoe's "Stevie"--two very different works linked by common themes and settings. Concludes that these works portray children exploring the variety and richness of life in New York City of the 1890s and of the 1960s, and that both emphasize the importance of love, family, and reaching out to others.
