Abstract [en]

In recent years, discussions about ethnic diversity and representation has become an

increasingly frequent debate. The aim of this study was to examine the extent to which people of dark skin were represented in picture books. We also wanted to study whether the representation of people with dark skin has increased over the past ten years (2006- 2015). Through a quantitative content analysis we collected the study’s empirical material from 259 picture books. The study shows, among other things, that people of dark skin gets very little space in children ́s books and when they appear it is often as characters of less importance.
