English abstract
Our thesis deals with norms in picturebooks and reading sessions in preschool. Based on our previous experience of practice and work in preschool, we have a perception that children and adults have different awareness concerning picturebooks. The purpose of the study is therefore to find the norms which are passed through the picturebooks, the norms which can be seen in reading sessions and what happens with them in the meeting between picturebooks and reading sessions. To visualize the norms we have in our analysis used theoretical tools, as a norm critical perspective (reading sessions) and deconstruction (picturebooks). We have in our material been looking for normmarkers, expectations that have been taken for granted and looked for identity of the categories: gender, sex, sexuality, ethnicity, religion, generation, age, function, and class. We have through a qualitative method, observation, obtained our material in four divisions, from two preschools in a major city in Sweden. In total we have attended four reading sessions and analyzed five picturebooks that were read at these sessions. Our result show that the ruling norms, hetero- and whiteness norms, are reproduced by picturebooks and reading sessions, while ideas about different and deviant sexuality, ethnicity, religion and functionality not were addressed therefore were taken for granted. Another phenomenon that we noticed was how the relationship between adults and children, during the reading sessions, was controlled by external conditions. Our conclusion is that awareness of norms in preschool during reading sessions and around the picturebooks is not always so wide, which could lead to a reproduction of ruling and stereotypical norms.
