Pace, Barbara G.; Lowery, Ruth M.
New Advocate, v14 n1 p33-41 Win 2001
Investigates questions of conventional stereotypes and power structures by describing how a book such as "Dulcie Dando, Soccer Star" sustains deep-level stereotypes of gender, despite its surface features. Explores how these stereotypes are reinforced when conventional ways of being female and male emerge as powerful elements in this story. Notes the discussion of these gender-sensitive children's picture books in classrooms. (SC)
