Wagner, L. (2017). Factors influencing parents’ preferences and parents’ perceptions of child preferences of picturebooks. Frontiers in Psychology, 8, 1448. https://doi.org/10.3389/fpsyg.2017.01448. An initial test for outliers showed that ‘Little Miss Chatterbox’ and ‘Mr. Chatterbox’ had z scores of 2.49 and 6.69 above the mean, so these outliers were removed from analyses of this item. To test for differences in the average number of words in direct speech, we ran a one-way between-subjects ANOVA, which revealed no significant differences in direct speech between the male characters in the Mr. Men books ( M = 61.53, SD = 36.01) and female characters in the Little Miss books ( M = 53.52, SD = 34.98), F(1, 77) = 20.08, p = .33, η p 2 = 0.012.

We then tested whether the book groups differed by the gender of the peripheral characters. Across the books, peripheral characters were significantly more likely to be male ( n = 239), with fewer female peripheral characters ( n = 44), F(1, 80) = 124.539, p< .001, η p 2 = 0.6. To test the prevalence of peripheral characters within books by gender of titular character, a mixed 2 (gender of main character: Little Miss versus Mr. Men) x 2 (gender of peripheral character: female versus male) ANOVA was conducted. This interaction revealed that there were significantly more male peripheral characters in Little Miss books ( M = 3.65, SD = 1.70) compared to Mr. Men books ( M = 2.45, SD = 1.59), F(1,79) = 9.86, p = .002, η p 2 = 0.11. There were no differences in the number of female peripheral characters in Little Miss books ( M = 0.59, SD = 0.92) compared with Mr. Men books ( M = 0.51, SD = 0.78), p = .68.
