Children's literature is one of the most influential mediums
for the gender socialization of young children. Furthermore, Caldecott
books are "highly visible and frequently selected" and
are considered to be the "best" books for children. Through
content analysis, a quantitative study was conducted, testing existing
theory about the sexist nature of gender representations in Caldecott
award-winning books. Additionally, the question of whether or not
change has occurred over time was examined. All findings from this
study will be presented, along with some discussion of past research
in this area.
