A study determined how economically deprived people were portrayed in selected works of children's literature. The content of 30 children's books of realistic fiction written by authors and illustrators of Newbery and Caldecott Award Winners and Honor Books was analyzed. Results indicated that: (1) nearly all economically deprived characters were described as attractive; (2) the books written by winners of Caldecott Award and Honor Books portrayed young black males as economically deprived at a significantly higher rate; (3) books written by winners of Newbery Award and Honor Books portrayed young white females as economically deprived at a slightly higher rate; and (4) more children than adults were portrayed as economically deprived in both Caldecott and Newbery books. (Twenty references, a list of the books selected, and 10 tables of data are attached.) (RS)
