Abstract

Antislavery children’s literature provides a forum for women writers to speak to girls of their era in children’s literature, imagining their younger sisters’ and daughters’ roles and responsibilities. With titles that indicate an imagined girls’ readership, John P. Jewett’s series of antislavery toy books provide a rich archive to examine how women writers imagined the rising generation of girls.
