For example, in “Not All Men Are Sly Foxes” there was an exert that states, “The librarian gave me a list of the twenty most popular contemporary picture books and I read every one of them.
Of the twenty, seven don’t mention a parent at all.
Naturally, I will expect a fresh, new life; my wife will take the children and be solely responsible for them so I am left free.
” In that exert and throughout the essay the author is treating being a wife like having a job.

Of the remaining thirteen, four portray fathers as much less loving and caring than mothers.
” This provided imagery and personal facts for his audience on how much discrimination takes place in children’s books towards fathers.
