Overview

Hidden Messages In Children’s Picture Books analyzes six picture books, The Velveteen Rabbit, The Little Island, Horton Hatches the Egg, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, Are You My Mother?, and Monster Mama to offer insights into the way children’s stories can lead young children to adopt and accept stereotyped gender roles or challenge them. If women want to change the way they are perceived, the first place to start is with the stories we tell. We can not challenge that which we are unaware exists.

Editorial Reviews

Margaret Mackey
“I am very engaged by the robust inquiring eye Pearson brings to the illustrations ... It is a testimonial to the ongoing significance of these books and a reminder that risk is a huge component of literacy, even or perhaps especially in childhood."

--- Margaret Mackey, Professor, School of Library and Information Studies, at the University of Alberta.
Simone Kaplan
“Absolutely fascinating. Ran for my copies of the “bunny books” and pored over them as I read it. Whether one accepts Freud's version of the world or not, one thing's for sure - no one who reads this book will ever look at Goodnight Moon in the same old way again.”
