Books that make a difference www.olika.nu


OLIKA PUBLISHING HOUSE OLIKA PUBLISHING HOUSE – BOOKS THAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE Founded in 2006, we are an award-winning Swedish publishing house that produces high quality children’s books. The word OLIKA means different in Swedish and our books are different from the ones usually found in the children’s section in that they challenge stereotypes and limiting norms. Our titles reflect the diversity of modern society in terms of gender and ethnicity, (dis) abilities and family forms – thereby offering more children the possibility to identify with the characters in our books. We believe that literature has the power to influence children’s perception of themselves and of the world around them. For this reason, we choose our manuscripts carefully and work closely with our authors and illustrators. We provide children, parents, teachers and librarians with books that subtly, often without comment, challenge traditional and limiting stereotypes rather than reinforce them.

OLIKA

In 2012, we were awarded Equality Award the Swedish Equality Award and winner our for ip rsh ola Sch ck nbe Ste the diversity efforts to promote equality and our title in children’s literature. In 2013, n was chosen Courage with Wilma and Loppa ternational as Outstanding Book by IBBY (In ). We are Board on Books for Young People discuss frequently asked to represent and n and Swedish equality both in Swede lude, abroad. Former collaborators inc ent among others, the Swedish Parliam e, and the Swedish Embassy in Rom Madrid and Washington.


GENDER EQUALITY Besides childrenʻs books, we publish handbooks on diversity and gender equality. Our bestseller Give Your Children 100 Possibilities Instead of 2 has introduced a new way of discussing issues of gender equality in Sweden. In 2015, we published a unique and muchlonged for handbook on equality issues and solutions in preschools: Norm Creativity in Preschools – Norm Critique and Equality Tools. One of our most famous childrenʻs books is Kivi & Monster Dog. Published in 2012, it was the first Swedish children’s book using the gender neutral pronoun hen. The book made headlines nationally and internationally and went on to be discussed in Swedish media for months. As a result, the word hen made its way into the Swedish vocabulary – a major equality breakthrough! Welcome to OLIKA!

“One cold day, my daughter had a meltdown because I wouldn’t let her wear her dress. With big tears running down her cheeks, she yelled: I want to wear my dress because when I do, the teachers tell me I’m pretty!” “When my son was three years old, girls and boys stopped playing together. No one seemed to find this weird.”

Give Your Child 100 Possibilities Instead Of 2 is a book for all parents and adults who want to give children more possibilities in a world full of gender stereotypes.
