Vlach, Saba Khan – Journal of Children's Literature, 2022
Transformative, anti-oppressive curricula, as theorized by Banks (1989, 2014) and Kumashiro (2001, 2009), directly address present-day realities of racism, discrimination, and oppression. According to Banks (1989), a transformative curriculum includes "the infusion of various perspectives, frames of reference, and content from various groups,…

Anand, Divya; Hsu, Laura M. – Journal of Children's Literature, 2022
In the United States, a majority-white children's publishing industry is increasingly marketing books labeled as "antiracist," which may inadvertently center the comfort of white children, often at the expense of BIPOC children. This article proposes a critical "white" literacy approach and uses it to analyze two children's…

Jackson, Sarah E.; Degener, Rebekah May; Sivashankar, Nithya – Journal of Children's Literature, 2022
In this article, we argue that picturebooks about food production, consumption, and distribution can provide rich opportunities for early childhood educators to facilitate critical conversations about culture, power, social action, and justice with their students.

Kim, So Jung – Journal of Children's Literature, 2022
This article examines the pedagogical potential of art-based, early critical literacy as a space in which young bilingual children can explore the issues of human diversity and uniqueness. Adopting a qualitative case study approach, this study focused on 12 five-year-old children of Mexican origin at a charter school located in Texas.

Coyne, Paige; Munroe-Chandler, Krista J.; Woodruff, Sarah J. – Journal of Children's Literature, 2022
Body image is a broad, multidimensional construct that encompasses an individual's perceptions, thoughts, and feelings about their own body, most often in relation to its physical appearance (Cash & Pruzinsky, 1990; Schilder, 2013; Thompson et al., 1999). Until relatively recently, the majority of body image and body-dissatisfaction research…

Wissman, Kelly K. – Journal of Children's Literature, 2022
In this article, the author considers the affordances of bringing theories of affect (e.g., Davies, 2014; Dutro, 2019; Leander & Boldt, 2013) to understandings of meaning-making with culturally sustaining picturebooks within an intervention setting. Culturally sustaining picturebooks are defined as books reflective of multiple languages and…

Maton, Rhiannon M.; Dexter, Breeanna; McKeon, Nicolette; Urias-Velasquez, Emily; Washington, Breanna – Journal of Children's Literature, 2022
Nationally, one in 100 adults is currently incarcerated. Meanwhile, more than 2.7 million U.S. children--or one in 28 children (The Pew Charitable Trusts, 2010)--currently have a parent who is incarcerated, and many more U.S. children face the daily effects of familial incarceration due to past parental incarceration or the incarceration of other…

Crossley, Jared S.; Parsons, Linda T. – Journal of Children's Literature, 2022
Rudine Sims Bishop (1990) emphasized that children need to see themselves as well as others reflected in the books available to them. For children who are deaf, images of themselves that are "distorted or laughable or inaccurate" (Bishop, 1997) negatively impact their self-esteem and reinforce their marginalized status. The portrayals of…

Stevenson, Alma D.; Beck, Scott – Journal of Children's Literature, 2021
The educational needs of the children of migrant laborers have often been neglected by educators who have dismissed them as someone else's responsibility (Vocke, 2007). The migrants' complex transnational experiences have been largely overlooked in school curricula. This deficiency allows anti-migrant attitudes to fester among teachers and…

Yi, Joanne – Journal of Children's Literature, 2021
More than just the movement across borders, transnationalism represents the entwining of past and present and the once discrete notions of the local, national, and global (Kivisto & Faist, 2010; Schiller, 1997). Transnationalism calls for a reconfiguration of identity and settlement that encompasses the realities of immutable linkages across…

Abas, Suriati; Bamanger, Ebrahim; Gashan, Amani K.; Guler, Aslihan – Journal of Children's Literature, 2021
The rise in hate crimes toward immigrants across communities (Potok, 2017) has led to a focus on children's literature with immigration themes for opening up conversations in classrooms (Rodriguez & Braden, 2018). Because children's knowledge about people and the communities they live in is informed by the media, portrayals of immigrants'…

Teague, Latoya – Journal of Children's Literature, 2021
Educators and librarians have a responsibility to capture the transnational border-crossing experiences of all students, including children of the African diaspora. Narratives of African diaspora border crossings disrupt stories of linear migration. These stories feature histories of displacement, trauma, and unbelonging. And yet, they embrace…

Chung, Sunah; Chaudhri, Amina – Journal of Children's Literature, 2021
In the realm of modern children's literature, biographies of women showcase lives of exceptional talent, perseverance, civic engagement, and more: lives meant to inspire young readers. Since its inception in 2001, the Robert Sibert Informational Book Medal and Honor award has included a biography (or two) every year, with the exception of 2004 and…

Connors, Sean P.; Trites, Roberta Seelinger – Journal of Children's Literature, 2021
The disproportionate impact of environmental degradation on First Nations peoples and on other communities of color is not new. Indigenous peoples, Black people, and other marginalized communities experience the consequences of environmental degradation disproportionately (Taylor, 2014; Washington, 2019), telling us that environmental justice and…

Wargo, Jon M.; Coleman, James Joshua – Journal of Children's Literature, 2021
Historically, early lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer-inclusive (LGBTQ+) picturebooks deployed representations of (in)human characters (i.e., birds, bunnies, shapeshifters, and more) to open readers to queer subjects (Young, 2019). While useful for expanding conceptions of queer life, such a move has had unintended consequences. The…
