Purpose: The purpose of the present research was to explore the extent of the use of entrepreneurship components in children’s storybooks of age group ‘C’.
Methodology: The present research was ‘applied’ in terms of purpose, and used a content analysis method. Thirty storybooks selected through a simple random sampling procedure served as the research sample from among the authored books selected by the Children's Book Council for the age group ‘C’ during the years 2018-2020. A researcher-generated checklist with six entrepreneurship components and 40 sub-components, whose validity and reliability were confirmed by experts, was used to examine the storybooks.
Results: The overall rate of employing entrepreneurship components in the selected storybooks was 38.9%. There was a significant difference between the priority of entrepreneurship components, so that ‘creativity and innovation’ and ‘the need for success’ were the most frequently used components. These were followed by ‘the need for independence’, ‘risk-taking’, ‘ambiguity tolerance’, and ‘locus of internal control’. Only a small percentage of the selected books addressed more than half of the entrepreneurship components. The richest storybook in terms of the use of entrepreneurial components was found to be the story of ‘Pushka’.
Originality: For the first time, entrepreneurship components in children’s storybooks were examined in this study. The results of this study can serve as a guide for authors to create books for teaching entrepreneurship to children. Also, the valuable storybooks identified in this study in terms of entrepreneurial components can be recommended to educators, parents, and librarians as books suitable for teaching entrepreneurship to children.
