I need help finding information for a class project.
Hi, I am a first year graduate student at the University of Michigan. For one of my classes I have to write an article for possible publication in Library Media Connection. I would like to write my article on the importance of having non-traditional families showcased in children and YA fiction. I am looking for any information that could be used to research an article on this topic. I have done some preliminary searching on my own and am having a hard time finding any information. Mostly I have just been googling and trying to find scholarly articles that even touch on the subject. What I am hoping to find is statistical information on the number of books that feature a non-traditional family (single parent, divorced parent, same-sex, guardians, foster family, interracial families) in a positive light vs a negative spin. Also possible psychological applications on why it is important to children in these types of families to see books that show them, or any other publication that may touch on this subject. I would really appreciate any help you can provide me in helping to find this information. Thank you, Alicia
