An Ideological Reading of Uncle Arthur’s Bedtime Stories Using Critical Literacy

Description:
"Uncle Arthur’s bedtime stories stands as the principal and archetypal Seventh-day Adventist children’s literature text. It is heavily inscribed with distinct ideologies, which are specifically referential to Seventh-day Adventist dogma and faith. As children read these texts, they are exposed to, and affected by, these ideologies." This paper "seeks to expose the overt and covert ideologies of the text so that their power can be recognised and their value evaluated."
