Works about this Work

Nuclear Education in Contemporary German Children's Literature Ruth R. Kath , 1986 single work criticism
— Appears in: The Lion and the Unicorn , vol. 10 no. 1986; (p. 31-39)

'Germans—and their children—live daily with the reality of both nuclear power plants and stockpiled nuclear weapons, and that has been reflected in a number of the German children's works produced in recent years, including forcefully illustrated picture books, even for pre-schoolers, as well as poetry and prose for the older child. This article explores three German-language picture books which discuss the issue of nuclear power. I make no claim to comprehensiveness, but seek rather to survey several works which are innovative in their treatment of the subject.'
