The image of preschool through picture books : A study of how preschool is portrayed in eight picture books (English)
Abstract [en]

The goal with this essay is to determine if the image of preschool, in a specified number of picture books, is consistent with the posted goals of the preschool operations in the curriculum of preschool published in 1998 (hereafter Lpfö 98). Besides that the essay is also planned to look at how the preschool’s status have changed after Lpfö 98 was established and if this is shown in the picture books. Therefore this essay will focus on picture books published 1998-2009 because after that a new version of Lpfö 98 was published. Also the picture books chosen for this study are all stories about preschool or kindergarten.The questions that this essay will answer are: How are the activities in preschool described, and how do they match the guidelines in Lpfö 98? In what way has the status of preschool been affected since Lpfö 98 was published? In what way has the teachers’ role been affected and how is that shown?In order to answer these questions I will use a quality text analysis of picture books for children. The results will be analyzed in relation to previous research and theories.The main focus in this essay will be the results of the picture books in comparison to Lpfö 98. The results of the analysis show that the image of the teacher and the preschool activities are somewhat inconsistent with the goals of Lpfö 98.
