Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Holmes (psychology, Monmouth College, NJ) examines children's conceptions of race and ethnicity and explores how these factors influence their social relationships. In contrast to many such studies which take place in contrived or structured settings, this study approaches children in the more natural setting of the classroom and provides a real "child's-eye" view, confirming that race is a social construction which children learn at a young age.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Using the results of a participant observation study, Robyn M Holmes illustrates how young children learn about ethnic identity. Unlike many previous studies, performed in experimental and contrived settings, the author worked with children in a kindergarten environment. The resulting account uses the children's own words and drawings to illustrate their beliefs and understanding about race and ethnicity. Particular issues addressed include: how children understand group boundaries; view their selves; and develop an ethnic component of friendship, romance and procreation.

Synopsis:

How Young Children Perceive Race examines children's conceptions of race and ethnicity and explores how these factors influence their social relationships. In contrast to most previous studies of children's beliefs and attitudes (done in experimental, contrived, and/or structured settings), this book studies children in their natural environment: the classroom. The author uses the children's own conceptualizations, relying largely on their words and drawings to elicit beliefs and understandings about race and ethnicity. From these data, Robyn M. Holmes divines how kindergartners and other young children understand group boundaries and how they establish an ethnic component for their senses of self and for their concepts of friendship, romance, and procreation. This exciting study will interest scholars, teachers, and students of race/ethnicity, psychology, early childhood education, child development, family studies, sociology, and education. "Focused on the racial beliefs and attitudes of young children, Robyn M. Holmes's research provides data in several areas: how children categorize people on the basis of race and ethnicity; how children view interracial romantic relationships and why race is an issue in such relationships; why race is not a factor in selecting a same-sex friend; how interracial relationships develop; and how children's notions of race affect their knowledge of procreation. Holmes has surely met the goal of this book, to present children's notions of racial and ethnic matters in their own terms. Recommended for social science collections." --Multicultural Review "Robyn M. Holmes writes clearly and describes her research in a manner accessible to the averageundergraduate. . . . A good example of anthropological method." --Choice "This is a wonderful ethnographic study of the race relations attitudes and beliefs of young children. . . . In presenting her findings, Robyn M. Holmes reminds us once again that race is a social construction that is learned during young, tender ages and thus, is not just 'an adult' problem or issue." --from the Foreword by John H. Stanfield II
