Contesting Ideology in Children's Book Reviewing.
Reese, Debbie
Studies in American Indian Literatures, v12 n1 p37-55 Spr 2000
A study of attitudes about reviews of children's books found that librarians and teachers wanted stereotypes pointed out because children should have accurate information about other cultures. However, a book reviewer's experience suggests that editors may reject reviewers' objections and advocate for authors' freedom of speech, even when offensive or harmful to children.
