The Institute for Research on the History of Children's Literature in Iran (IRHCLI) is a non-profit organization dedicated to researching the history of children's literature in Iran. It was established in 2000 by researchers who had begun working on the subject in 1997.
The history of children's literature in Iran is not limited to a historical report of the development of children's literature. It is an analytical study that not only surveys the changes in children's status during the time, but also shows the evolution of the educational system that helped children's literature emerge.
Reviewing the development of modern children's literature during 1300-1340 (1920-1960) is continued in the 6th volume covering such titles as: The appearance of children's poems, the appearance of children's magazines, gathering and retelling of old folk and classic literature, translated children's books, as well as children's dramatic literature.
Similar to other published volumes, where appropriate, margin notes in relation with the main text such as: "interview with history", "literary and historical surveys", and "selected texts" have been included. These additions help familiarize readers with historical phenomena by offering different perspectives and provide them with the opportunity to consider views other than the main writer's.
All bibliographies, biographies, newspapers, magazines, documents and references which were published during (1300-1340) (1920-1960) have been examined issue by issue and cover to cover to find and prepare a clear list of children's reference from that time.
The contributions of pioneer personalities such as Sedighe DolatAbadi, Ebrahim BaniAhmad, Mohammad Ali Jamalzadeh, as well as Shams-ol-Molook e Mosaheb are reviewed in the present volume.
