Beal, Carole R.; Garrod, Andrew; Ruben, Kate; Stewart, Terri L.; Dekle, Dawn J.
Journal of Moral Education, v26 n1 p45-58 Mar 1997
Reports on experiments that examined the extent to which children's moral orientation is affected by the gender of characters experiencing a dilemma in children's literature. Children often responded to the character's dilemma by expressing a concern for others (care orientation) or focusing on issues of rights and justice (rights orientation). (MJP)
