Two documents I reference are:

Checklists for Counteracting Race and Sex Bias in Educational Materials.
Martha P. Cotera, Compiler, Austin, Texas
Printed and distributed by the Women's Educational Equity Act Publishing
Center at
Education Development Center
55 Chapel Street, Newton, Ma 02160
Guidelines for Selecting Bias-Free Textbooks and Storybooks
Published by:
Council on Interracial Books for Children
1841 Broadway, NY, NY 10023

Both are from the 80's and unfortunately still relevant.
