The purpose of this study is to find out what preschool teachers think about antisocial children's literature. Based on five qualitative interviews with teachers at a preschool that works with a standard critical approach. In order to fulfill my purpose with this study, I focused on how these teachers felt that it was important to use the standard critical children's literature in preschool. I wanted to find out what the teachers' thoughts were on the concept of standard critical children's literature and how and whether they use it in their daily activities. When I analyzed the results of my interviews I used the queer theories that include standard critical pedagogy and literature in preschool. The interviews of the teachers indicated that they thought it was very important to work with the standard critical children's literature and considered it an important gear that they use. Educators believe that the normalized critical literature is important in the preschool environment because it can reflect all children. The results of my study show that by examining their own norms and perceptions of normality, allowing you to work with a standard critical approach. It also gives you an awareness that will help you as a teacher to understand how you can make use of the standard critical children's literature. The active choice of method and materials in preschool helps preschool teachers to understand how to make use of literature daily. The standard critical literature in preschool educators can introduce different realities for children. It also helps them to develop the vision to analyze the norms and show that there are a lot of different people living in different ways.
