An excellent book on how young children construct gendered identities is
called "Girls are the Ones with the Pointy Nails." Karen Bailey, the
author, uses direct observation and extensive transcribing based on
conversations with and between students 3-5 or so years old. For further
information, you can go to the publisher's web page at: I've used it often in teaching
teacher candidates and education students about young children's
attitudes about and constructions of gender.
