L’enfant porteur de trisomie 21 et sa fratrie dans la littérature jeunesse

Abstract : The corpus used for this study contains 17 children’s books in French, all dealing explicitly with Down syndrome, directed at children aged 3-12 years and published between 1995 and 2011. First, a thematic content analysis was used to explore the representation of disabled children (physical characteristics, social and intellectual capacities). Then, the specificities of sibling relationships were analyzed, with particular attention to the position of the sibling of the disabled child. The aim was to examine the connections between the representations uncovered in the study, the didactic function expected from children’s books and the scientific data concerning relationships in families with a Down syndrome child.
