Iranian myths in children’s literature are the reflection of believers and principles of different groups and they are used as literary and artistic treasure house within the framework of children’s books. By using this method, a child cannot be taught directly while communication with the previous world acquaints with cultural history of epic literature and national myth. Nowadays most of the myths and mythical creatures are with adopting of Ferdowsi’s Shāhnāmeh (940-1020) and these are entered in children’s stories. This article uses 10 years of children’s literature that was written by women and which adopts mythical stories.
