Wollman-Bonilla, Julie E.
Language Arts, v75 n4 p287-95 Apr 1998
Examines why some pre- and inservice teachers concluded that certain children's books were inappropriate for children because the books might frighten or corrupt children; fail to represent dominant social values or myths; or identify racism or sexism as a social problem. Describes how these criteria are consciously applied. (SR)
