Detta är en Uppsats för yrkesexamina på avancerad nivå från Karlstads universitet/Institutionen för språk, litteratur och interkultur (from 2013)

Sammanfattning: The purpose of the study is to examine how the shy child is portrayed in four children's books. Vem ska trösta Knyttet? and Det osynliga barnet from the 1960s and also Snäll and Gittan och gråvargarna from the 2000s. The analysis is based on a gender perspective where the epochs are significant. The method is a children's literature analysis since it's considered appropriate in this study. The theoretical foundation in the study is gender theory, as research on gender was of great importance to the children's book during the 1960s and even today. The result of the study illustrate how the shy child is portrayed in different ways in the children's literature and is made visible through the appearance, behavior and environment around the child. The children experience a change as their characteristics range from female to male stereotypical characteristics. The shy children are perceived more or less as invisible as they are associated with loneliness, exclusion and silence. The result is discussed in connection with the norm-critical work at school.
