The Influence of Children's Literature on Gender Role Perceptions: A Reexamination.
Trepanier-Street, Mary L.; Romatowski, Jane A.
Early Childhood Education Journal, v26 n3 p155-59 Spr 1999
Reexamined preschoolers' gender attitudes regarding occupational roles, and the impact of use of selected children's books and planned book-related activities on thinking about gender and occupational roles. Found that although preschoolers' attitudes were still generally stereotypic, they were more flexible than in previous research regarding occupational roles. Reading of carefully selected books and book-related activities were associated with less stereotypic gender attitudes. (KB)
