Image of the Child in the Lebanese Children's Literature

The purpose of the study is to attempt a description of the child’s image in books written for children and published in the Lebanese context. Nevertheless, it should be noted here that these children’s books are basically written with the Arab audience in mind not exclusive to Lebanon per se although a few books are specific in theme to Lebanese issues.

The study posed four hypotheses which investigated

  1. the child’s image in children’s literature in relation to recent research in education
  2. the child’s image in children’s literature as a reflection of society,
  3. stereotyping in children’s literature in Lebanon, and
  4. the impact of social and political change on children’s literature.
