Lamme, Linda Leonard
New Advocate, v13 n4 p347-64 Fall 2000
Explores how authors and illustrators of 21 children's picture books with international settings portray children of poverty. Discusses causes and representations of poverty in the books: fathers who leave home to find work; child laborers; modes of transportation; housing; children who lack material goods; and the barter system. Finds characterizations of children who face adversarial conditions with courage and ingenuity. (SR)
