Jaeger, Cora – Brock Education: A Journal of Educational Research and Practice, 2018
Tracking the depictions of animals in children's literature through history reveals not only what authors think about animals, but also what they think about the human experience and of childhood itself.

Matthews, Corinne – Brock Education: A Journal of Educational Research and Practice, 2018
Sexuality is both everywhere and nowhere in children's literature since it collides with an ideology of childhood innocence that works to erase childhood sexuality altogether.
