Representations of Sibling Relationships in Young Children's Literature.
Kramer, Laurie; Noorman, Sonia; Brockman, Renee
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v14 n4 p555-74 1999
Examined how sibling relationships were portrayed in a sample of 261 children's books, as well as how parents were depicted when responding to sibling conflict. Found that although children's books often represented warmth and involvement between siblings, they rarely described conflict management or relational maintenance activities. Parents were portrayed as responding to conflict using controlling methods. (Author/KB)
