Abstract

This study assesses sex-role stereotyping in core picture books from the California State Department of Education's Recommended Readings in Literature using modified criteria from past studies of sexism in children's literature, notably Weitzman et.al. (1972), Kolbe and La voie (1981), Collins et.al. (1984) and Stewig and Higgs (1973). A survey of previous literature notes the types, trends, and influences of sexism in children's literature.
