Values Embodied in Children's Literature Used in Early Childhood Education in Israeli State Schools
Court, Deborah; Rosental, Ety
Early Childhood Education Journal, v34 n6 p407-414 Jun 2007
Societies can examine themselves and their values through examining their literature and the way they use literature in values education. This research investigated the values embodied in children's literature used by early childhood teachers in Israeli state schools. On the basis of questionnaires completed by 14 early childhood educators, and analysis of the official list of recommended children's books published by the Israeli Ministry of Education, the value "mutual respect and friendship" was found to be most prominent. Structural aspects of children's books were seen to emphasize the values the books convey.
