Multimedia Recommendations & Critiques
Children’s media is an invaluable source of information and reflects the attitudes in our society about various social identities (e.g., racial, ethnic, gender, economic class, sexual orientation, and disability). The visual and verbal messages children absorb from media (books, movies, etc.) heavily influence their ideas about themselves and others. Depending on the quality of said media, 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 differences. It teaches children about who is important, who matters, and who is even visible. Consequently, carefully choosing quality children’s media is an indispensable educational and child-rearing task.
