Abstract or Summary
  • Qualitative and quantitative analysis of the top ten best-selling children's picture books of 2006 reveals that these books contain elements of systematic privilege and oppression. Dominant group members are numerically overrepresented in the sample. Major emergent themes are the normalization of racism and white privilege, the stereotypical portrayal of the few female characters, and male characters' reckless disregard for others. These results are discussed in the context of educating adults to be aware of bias in the evaluation and selection of children's literature.
