Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine how four educators in two different departments at two different preschools in Stockholm, selects children's literature in preschool and how literature is used in the activities and how much influence children have in the choice of literature. Based on qualitative interviews as a method we have interviewed pedagogues to get answers to our questions. We will also interview some children to find out how involved they are in the purchase of literature on the departments we examined. We consider the social cultural perspective to be a well rounded starting point for our survey, because the theory gives us the opportunity to study how the interaction and meetings between educators and children develop for each reading encounter. And through the analysis a thorough display between educators and children towards literature will be shown. The study show that the educators are aware of the importance that literature entails for children´s language development. Therefore, it is a thoughful approach to how educators preselect the usage of literature in its operation. All educators have the purpose to increase the childrens influence in purchasing litterature in the teaching activities, in hopes of increasing the children’s interest in books and therefore increase children's language development.
