The "Guide for Selecting Anti-Bias Children's Books" states: "The visual and verbal messages young children absorb from books (and other media) heavily influence their ideas about themselves and others. Depending on the quality of the book, they can reinforce (or undermine) children's affirmative self-concept, teach accurate (or misleading) information about people of various identities, and foster positive (or negative) attitudes about diversity." Do you agree with this quote? Explain why or why not. The phrase from the "Guide for Choosing Anti-Bias Children's Books" is one with which I wholeheartedly concur. Children's perspectives and attitudes are definitely greatly influenced by the content they come across in books and other media. The quote emphasizes how important literature and media are in forming kids' opinions and morals. Therefore, it is not only a moral but also an educational requirement to choose books that promote variety and are devoid of prejudice. Good children's books have the capacity to favorably affect young brains, promoting a more inclusive and equitable society.
