WomanSource Catalog & Review: Tools for Connecting the Community for WomenMany of our ideas about the world are shaped by what we read. With this in mind, three women have put together a helpfulsourcebook for parents, teachers and librarians to help fight sexism at an early age. Gender Positive! lists and examines books that show boys and girls the many options available to them in the world, unhampered by stringent sex-role stereotypes. Each entry contains a synopsis of the main character and story lines with the nonstereotyped aspects identified, a target activity with questions and discussion topics, and there are extended activity units in the last chapters. The six criteria used in choosing books are also explained so that the reader can evaluate other books as well. Gender Positive! is an ideal tool for parents, teachers and librarians worried about stereotypes that tomorrow's adults are incorporating into their personalities and worldviews.
